Eco Schools Appeal

Hounsdown Eco Schools and gardening club are hoping to make a working greenhouse out of 2 litre plastic bottles. We will be collecting bottles this half term and constructing the greenhouse in June. Please could you save any 2 litre bottles you have and ask your children to bring them into their tutor. This will be run as a house competition with a prize for the tutor group who bring the most in. We need approximately 1500.

Thank you for your support.
