Wednesday 24 June 2020

Thanks to the enthusiasm and hard work of pupils at St Anne's, the school has achieved Plastic Free status.

The programme aims to equip and empower young people to play an active part in changing their environment through working towards objective set by the organisation Surfers Against Sewage.

A committee of pupil at St Anne's led the rest of the school in the following activities to complete a number of objectives:

In a letter to parents, Head Teacher Martin Winward said:

"I think you will agree that the young people have made a real impression and it is hoped this will continue to inspire us all to be 'plastic' aware. There is still more to do and we will continue our work to help keep our school site and local community as plastic free as possible."

St Anne's had support from the Alderney Wildlife Trust, the Alderney Farm Shop, Alderney Shipping and the States of Alderney to achieve its new status.

Mr Windward also thanked Maria Collier for leading the initiative with colleagues across a number of curriculum areas in primary and secondary education.
