Here's our Eco Code for the year 2021-22:
Diffodd pob golau a chau bob tap.
Plannu blodau a bwyta'n iach.
Arbed ynni, ailgylchu popeth.
Arbed dwr, gwres ac ynni
Eco Gôd ni , eich byd gwerthfawr chi.

* Milk cartons
* Ink cartridges
* Mobile phones
If you as parents have a skill, time or ideas to help make Ysgol y Gwernant a green school we would be very grateful of your help and support . Thankyou.

* Egg boxes * newspaper and carboard * leaves
* Ash from the fireplace * Hay * Eggshells
