I hope this finds you well and keeping warm in the colder weather?

At our last assembly we talked about how this term we are going to re-explore the value of honesty in relation to keeping Weston School clean and tidy. In other words taking responsibility for our rubbish and being honest about putting in where it belongs!

Today at assembly we carried on with this theme and shared this video with the school. Do you know where so much of our rubbish goes once it gets into the water ways? It heads off to the garbage patches in the Pacific Ocean, of which there are five and the largest is the size of Eastern Australia!

We want our students to be a part of the solution not the pollution, so let them share this video with you over the weekend.

Garbage Patches in the Pacific Ocean

Have a lovely long weekend and see you next Tuesday.
