Thank you to all Eco-Schools leaders, Rachel, our Kettering Borough Council refuse and recycling Officer and Rachel and Rebecca from The Northamptonshire County Council Energy and Waste Education Team who visited our school recently to swap ideas and discuss events and opportunities for the year ahead.
All enjoyed sharing a guided tour of our school grounds, a game of eco bingo and a catch up on our news and plans for the year ahead. more information about the great work the NWEET team do on…
The search is over, the international eco calendar, eco badges and folders are delivered and the meetings have began. Today’s welcome meeting highlighted an enthusiastic team bursting with great ideas for the year ahead.
