Saltash Community School goes green!

Posted by on Sep 12, 2019 in News | No Comments

Year 7 students have made a brilliant start to their new school year. They have already been involved in a day of activities called Steps to Success to prepare them for life at secondary school. The day involved interactive workshops on keeping a healthy body and mind; having high aspirations; building character; and literacy. They’ve been welcomed into one of four Houses where they have learnt about our school values and our TEAM ethos.

Smartly dressed in the school’s new uniform, we are proud of our new logo. The new green colour represents our renewed focus on our environment and global warming. We also wanted to keep our community status and ensure this is key to our ethos and that of our Multi Academy Trust (SMART). Our new motto is ‘Achieving More Together’: a fundamental belief that our school is working within and for the community of Saltash.

To kick start this academic year, we have donated various food items to The Real Junk Food Project who use food discarded by supermarkets. The organisation uses the food to provide catering at a number of local groups and regularly provides a buffet at Saltash Wesley Methodist Church for anyone to enjoy. Some of our Year 7’s are pictured before the delivery left our school.

This is our first action to show our commitment to the Cornish Schools’ Green Charter. This will be followed up on Friday 20th September when we have a whole day focusing on environmental issues and global warming.
