Environmental workshops

The school year has only just started and Highclare  pupils are already enjoying enrichment workshops .

Pupils from J4 to J6 across Highclare Junior School enjoyed a series of environmental workshops during their first week of term. Tony and Amy from Veolia talked to the children about how waste is sorted and prepared for recycling as well as their waste to energy plant.

The children were particularly interested to learn about the precious metals inside their computers and how they can be recovered when the product is recycled.  An interesting start to the term!
