Recycling at Ashtree
We are very grateful to our 2020 School Council who wanted to find a way to recycle the new plastic milk bottles that are being supplied by HCC. The children, quite rightly, have taken a dim view of single-use plastics. The executive committee of the School Council were tasked with making a phone call to Stevenage Borough Council investigating the cost of recycling bins. Anna Y6 Eco Rep. and Jack Y6 Chairperson were very professional in their call and presented the dimensions of the bins that were required and the schedule of collections needed. As a result, Stevenage Borough Council are providing a free service to the school and we are all very grateful. Fantastic job everyone.
Stevenage Schools’ Parliament
Our School Council is also represented in the Stevenage Schools’ Parliament.
Our Parliament Representatives are yet to be chosen this academic year.
