In April 2018 QE celebrated Earth Week by participating in the annual Plastic Bag Grab challenge which asks schools across Canada to collect plastic bags for recycling. QE took up this challenge and collected 4209 bags which will be recycled and turned into items that can be used again from plastic decking, to toothbrushes. We just found out they were awarded $500 for their efforts. Way to go everyone!
Thanks to Mrs McKinney's Grade 1 class for getting involved and leaning about the importance of Reducing, reusing and recycling.
