Rosshall Academy Looking After Our Local Area
Keeping Our School Tidy To raise awareness of the issue of litter, our pupils prepared and delivered presentations at assemblies to highlight the importance of keeping our local area clean and tidy. All pupils in the school were encouraged to join in our recycling competition Recycle bins are located throughout the social spaces in the school
Recycling Competition To promote recycling in the school, we had an inter-house competition. At lunchtimes, over one week in March, we collected nearly 800 plastic bottles for recycling…saving them from landfill
Why we think it is important to recycle Recycling Is Important because If we keep sending all our rubbish to landfills then soon we will be out of resources. Also products produced using raw materials consumes more energy than ones produced with recycled materials. By using less energy, we help the environment by producing less harmful by-products and emissions.
Also, some statistics:- Glasgow increased its recycling rate by 5% in 2012 to 27.4% We can do better Every tonne of waste not recycled in Glasgow costs the taxpayer in Glasgow £64
Litter Pick Pupils in S2 & S4 organised a litter pick over 2 days in Rosshall Park and the area around Crookston Road Pupils have also worked in partnership with Lourdes Sec and Howford Primary. Next litter pick this Friday 26 April with Howford.
