They decided that our most pressing issue was paper waste more than any other. One of our year three members had the idea of getting recycling bins for every classroom in the school. Everyone decided this was a great idea and they would teach the classes how to use them! The next step was to track Mrs Donaldson down and ask her!
The children located her in computer club and she said if they decided exactly how many they wanted and told her how much it would cost she would make a decision.

They decided on some lovely clear and purple ones and gave their price and number to Mrs Donaldson.

She said yes! So the children went and ordered their new bins. They should be very proud of themselves for using their collaboration, communication and self drive to help them become more responsible citizens and try and improve our school.
