Composting

Christ Church ‘Composting Crew’ has begun composting the cores and peels of fruits and vegetables consumed in KS1 and the tea bags from the staff break room. The group, made up from our Eco Council members and an additional pupil from each Year 1-6, are responsible for taking the raw material out to the compost bins daily, turning the compost and adding leaves and other materials to the bins each week. The group participated in a special workshop teaching them about compost and worms as well as an additional workshop about landfill material and how long it takes to decompose. So far our composting efforts have been very successful, drastically reducing the amount of daily waste in each of the KS1 classrooms. We hope to grow this project to begin composting kitchen waste, but we need more composting bins before that begins.
