* 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.
As an eco council we strongly believe in not wasting anything and therfore we throw fruit and vegetable waste into the compost bin . These are the items you could bring into the school to help us make compost ( we don't need any fruit or vegetable waste) :
* Egg boxes * newspaper and carboard * leaves
* Ash from the fireplace * Hay * Eggshells
* Hair and nails clippings * Small amount of grass cuttings * sticks
* small amount of sheep wool.
