TALKING RUBBISH

Posted on 21st November 2019 | News

Year 8 pupils had a fun morning on 21 November 2019 when they participated in the ‘Bin It!’ workshop in St. Mary’s.

The aim of the ‘Bin It!’ show is to help pupils understand why it is important to take personal responsibility for correct litter disposal.

The workshop included an entertaining and educational live performance which aimed to tackle the challenging problems about litter in the most sustainable way – by changing behaviours.  ‘Bin It!’ raised pupils’ awareness of the environmental costs and social issues surrounding discarded litter, particularly chewing gum.  This engaging performance also helped to deliver key Citizenship learning points, as well as encouraging student co-operation, interest and participation.
