On 23rd November 2016 we hosted the 11th Annual Really Rubbish VIP Award Show, where we celebrated all the hard work and effort that the schools of Cardiff have put into the last year. We invited a couple of pupils from each participating school in Cardiff, to act as our “Recycling Ambassadors”. We hope that they learnt lots from the day and share all their knowledge to their classmates back at school.
On the day we gave out awards to some of the best participants of our Really Rubbish campaign 2016. The big winner of the day was St Philip Evans RC Primary School, who won Green School of the Year 2016. We were impressed by their commitment to ensuring pupils and teachers make their school and local area a greener environment through encouraging less food waste, setting up a Christmas clothes bank, litter picking and turning off lights, computers and other equipment when they are not being used.
The other winners were as follows:
Teacher of the Year 2016 – Rachel Johns from Kitchener Primary School
Food Waste Champions 2016 – Moorland Primary School
Recycler of the Year 2016 – Erin from St Bernadette’s Primary School
The 4R’s Award (Reduce, Re-use, Recycle, Recover) – Ton-Yr-Ywen Primary School
As well as giving out awards, the children took part in a range of sustainability workshops led by Love Food Hate Waste, One Planet, Viridor and The City of Cardiff Council’s energy department.
We would like to congratulate all the award winners and thank our sponsors Viridor and Cornerstone in helping us to produce an amazing event.
Until next time…
The Really Rubbish Team
