’Dragon Bags’ Clothes Recycling, Jan 2020


Dragon Bags is a free fundraising scheme that helps schools across Wales raise funds through textile recycling.  Instead of throwing our old clothes away at home, we bring them to school and put them in the big box.

We have just emptied the box again
The gentleman takes them to his van
The clothes then get weighed
The van was very full!
He gives us new bags ready to collect more clothes
The school gets money depending on the weight

Our Eco Garden Grows, September 2019

What a surprise when we returned from our holiday!
The things we planted in our garden had grown

Some weren’t quite ready to pick
What a lovely lettuce
We were amazed at the size of this courgette
