No plastic is fantastic

14jun2018-plasticOn Friday 8th June, The British School of Gran Canaria joined up with thousands of other schools around the world to take part in Zero Plastic Lunch day. We talked about the importance of reducing plastic waste in assembly on Thursday and looked at what can happen when the plastic rubbish gets into our oceans and seas. On Friday, we encouraged students to bring in snacks which would produce as little plastic waste as possible. Look at some of the fantastic examples we saw in the Primary department! Let's try to make this a daily thing! Thank you to those parents and children who supported this important initiative.

All the entrants were instructed to mention a compass and the phrase: "It was a strange object, but beautiful."
