Pupils at Wandsworth Prep work with local authorities to be more eco-friendly

Posted on: 12 Jun 2018

Pupils at Wandsworth Prep School have been inspired to set up a recycling project in school. The School Council, made up of pupils from different year groups, were determined to become more eco-friendly so they wrote a letter to the local council asking how to maximise recycling in school. 

Wandsworth Council recommended an agency called Western Riverside Waste Authority who ran a workshop at the school called ‘Bin Detectives’.  This workshop helped pupils to audit their rubbish and the school now has more recycling bins and 'Green Ambassadors' in place. 

Miss Sophie Eve, Year 3 Teacher who runs the School Council, said, “I have been so impressed with the children's independence and leadership throughout this recycling project, as well as how dedicated they are to making our school more eco-friendly. School Council members have all played an important part in inspiring pupils, teachers and parents at Wandsworth Prep and hopefully this in turn will allow them to inspire the wider community as well.”

Wandsworth Prep School is now working towards achieving a ‘Bronze Green Award’ which is the first step towards receiving an ‘Eco-School Green Flag’ for excellence in environmental action and learning.
