Rubbish Rebels Challenge

Congratulations to St Catherine’s Catholic Primary School in Penrith, who have won the 2017 Rubbish Rebels Challenge!

Rubbish Rebels trophy - CAfS Rubbish Rebels - St CatherinesTwenty schools across Cumbria took part in this brand-new challenge to reduce the amount of waste generated in school and at pupils’ homes.

During the 2017 spring and summer terms, a group of pupils from each school took part in a Rubbish Rebels workshop run by CAfS on behalf of Cumbria County Council. And then the challenge began!

The families of every pupil at the schools were invited to make pledges to cut down on waste, with points for every pledge made. St Catherine’s gained the most points, and have won the grand prize of £500!

Every family taking part was also entered into a draw to win a prize for the family, and we’ll announce the winner soon.




Meanwhile, here’s the final Rubbish Rebels leaderboard:
