The PYP Sustainable Spartans are continuing with projects that began in 2017 and are embarking on new ones too. Firstly, the environmental warriors are forging ahead with a quest to install recycling bins in the Junior School common areas.

Welcome to 2018! After discussions and careful considerations: paper, minimising general waste and organic recycling will be our focus this year. With potentially three new outdoor bins on the way, we have yet to decide where they will be located. The Ray Dining Hall as well as in the Year 3 to 6 recess eating area, are possible positons to house the bins. We will keep you posted!

The PYP Sustainable Spartans are continuing with projects that began in 2017 and are embarking on new ones too. Firstly, the environmental warriors are forging ahead with a quest to install recycling bins in the Junior School common areas, focus the year on minimising general waste and organic recycling.

In the meantime, there are recycling bins found in each Junior School Classroom, specifically for paper and cardboard. Please continue to put your used paper and cardboard in these bins. Members of the PYP Sustainable Spartans and the College cleaning team will continue to empty these classroom bins into a larger recycling bin.

Finally, last year we collected a great deal of used stationery that would have ordinarily gone into landfill. Our next project will be to send these pre-loved supplies to schools in Mozambique, Fiji and a remote school in Australia.

Thank you for supporting the PYP Sustainable Spartans. You will hear from us again soon!
