As part of our Green Flag process, Holy Trinity College have been working closely with Cookstown District Council, especially to see how we can help the council achieve its targets for the percentage of waste they have to recycle, and the council in turn, helps our school to recycle more materials. This year they have helped us to reduce the amount of food waste that we would normally have sent to landfill.
One of the councils' environmental officers visited our school in December 2013, and she talked to two of our year groups and the importance of reducing the amount of waste in our homes and businesses and in school, and on the different ways the council can help everyone in the district council area, to recycle more.
below is a copy of the presentation the council gave to our students.
Some of the girls from the Holy Trinity Eco Warriors gave a talk to the students in our school, telling them about waste and the need to reduce waste and to reuse and recycle more. Thsi is the PowerPoint they used.
