Rubbish Rebellion

Rubbish Rebellion!


This idea was set up by two pupils, with the idea that all children are responsible for looking after God's creation and that everybody is a steward of God. 


Tilly and Dexy left St Mary's last year and are currently developing the Rubbish Rebellion mission at Secondary School! 


We have some new members of the team that will continue the good work and will continue to collect crisp packets that will be turned into blankets for the homeless, collect used batteries and pens that can be recycled and to monitor the clothing recycling bank we have on site. 

Please see below for the history of the journey of the rubbish rebellion mission!

Devised, organised and run by Dexy and Tilly in Team Attenborough, Rubbish Rebellion is responsible for collecting our empty crisp packets at school. I wonder just how many we have managed to recycle?


But...they have lots of other ideas for different projects to help improve our environment and will be sharing these with us over the coming weeks and months!


Watch this space!



Tilly and Dexy have written to David Attenborough...




I wonder when we will get a reply?



And he replied!!



Dexy and Tilly have been busy writing to our Island MP, Bob Seely, asking him about wind turbines on the island.

They also wrote to Tesco's asking why they continue to use fruit nets when they are so bad for the environment.

Both Mr Seeley and Tesco's replied.
