Go Green Day plans - Friday 17 October / Diwrnod Gwyrdd - Dydd Gwener 17 Hydref

Pupils and staff at Cowbridge Comprehensive School will be celebrating Go Green Day – making it bigger and better than last year! Firstly, it will be a non-uniform day, but with a slight twist. If pupils wear an item of green clothing they will pay 50p - but if they fail to wear green, they’ll pay £1 instead. The greener the better! The money will go towards ‘The Size of Wales’ charity and Eco-initiatives in school.

Secondly, pupils and staff are being encouraged to leave their cars at home. It would be great if everybody could travel in the most eco-friendly way possible, by catching the bus, walking, cycling or car-sharing on Go Green Day. The Eco-Committee will be collecting information on how pupils and staff travelled to school during registration and we hope to improve on last year’s results.

Furthermore, a FairTrade cake sale will be held during key stage three and key stage four/five breaks. Also, the Eco-Action Club will be planting spring bulbs around the school grounds during lunch. Any support from parents, pupils and staff for Go Green Day by baking cakes or donating spring bulbs will be greatly appreciated. 
Lastly, during period 5, every pupil in KS3 - from Years 7 to 9 - will take part in a 3km Green Fun Run. Pupils need to wear appropriate green clothes to school and bring trainers with them. Sponsorship forms will be distributed next week for pupils to raise as much money as possible. Pupils can even challenge themselves to run the 3km in a personal best time. Prizes will be awarded for the fastest runners in each year group, including tickets to Taskforce. Let’s Go Green!
