Ferring C.E. Primary School

An Inspiring Place to Grow, Believe and Achieve

Welcome to the Green & Friendlies

 

We earned our latest Green Flag in September 2019. Thank you to everyone for your support.

 

What we do

We are a group of children from across year groups two to six who meet to discuss ECO matters within our school.

Here are some of the things we do :

  • litter picking
  • composting
  • recycling stamps
  • selling second hand school uniform
  • gardening
  • maintaining school grounds
  • saving the school money by saving energy!

 We would like to tell you a bit more about the things we save and collect.

Stamps

We collect used stamps to help fund raise for the Royal National Institute of Blind People.

Stamps should be cut or torn with approximately half to one centimetre surrounding the stamp. This protects the stamp as if the perforations are cut off, they are worthless.

Batteries

Empty batteries cannot be put in the home recycling bin, and will take over one hundred years to break down if they are thrown away with the rubbish. Instead, why not bring in your used batteries and put them in our battery box? They will be collected and recycled. We accept AA, AAA, C, D and 9-volt batteries.

School Uniform

We collect second hand school uniform and sell it, washed and ironed, to raise money for the Green and Friendlies. 

 Fruit, Vegetables and Staff Teabags

These are composted down and used as organic matter for school bedding and borders!
