St Margaret's has been very busy making sure we reduce our waste and recycle where possible. Our Primary 7s are in charge of recycling paper and collect in the paper waste from the blue bags every week so that it can then be taken down to the recycling center. Our kitchen staff are very good at using the school compost bin to make good use of any foodwaste in the kitchens. The PTA have an annual recycling campaign where all parents and carers are invited to recycle their old rags. During our school assemblies, all pupils are reminded about the importance of using the correct recycling bins in the playground and in the dinner hall.
The Eco Committee are working towards reducing the amount of paper used in school. One of our most recent developments is that the school newsletter will be available via the website instead of on paper.
