The whole Bishop Ramsey School community will be working on the exciting ‘Zero Waste School’ project with Groundwork Thames Valley this year to try to create ‘zero waste’ within the school and at home. The aim of the project is to involve students, staff and parents in the project, raising environmental awareness and putting into action some simple steps to reduce our carbon footprints.The students will carry out a home waste and energy audit followed by actions to reduce energy and increase recycling at home.
In late February the school will take delivery of a bank of wormeries which will help to digest their food technology and canteen food waste and produce large quantities of liquid fertilizer
In 2005 the Ruislip Residents’ Association agreed to sponsor a permanent exhibition of Bishop Ramsey CE school artwork at Mount Vernon hospital. The idea was for the school on an annual basis to renew the work on display.
The display can be viewed along the corridor of the Princess Christian Unit near Minor Injuries Unit.
