Returning for 2018, Countrystyle’s Schools Initiative Programme aims to educate primary school pupils in Kent on the 3 R’s – Reduce, Re-use and Recycle. The initiative closely follows Countrystyle’s strong ethos of landfill avoidance. Representatives from Countrystyle attend local schools for educational assemblies and a classroom session(s) throughout the academic year. Each session is tailored to the schools existing environmental and recycling policies (if applicable).
Commenting on the initiative, Head of Sales and Marketing Sonya Cragg said: “Our objective is to teach Primary School pupils the benefits of recycling and most importantly how they can recycle at home. The Schools Initiative is our way of connecting with these pupils, making the teaching process informative but fun. We strongly believe in the 3R’s at
Countrystyle. We are proud to work with Kent Schools and are pleased that the pupils take their new found knowledge home to share with their family but most importantly put it into practice.”
Assembly sessions are approximately 20 minutes long and are used as an informative platform to explain the benefits of recycling. The assembly involves several practical sessions, and an educational video, produced by a local Kent Secondary School.
Countrystyle mentored Maplesden Noakes 6th Form students in their 2016 Business Challenge, students produced an educational video, teachers pack and reward stickers.
These aid Countrystyle to engage with pupils and re-enforce the 3 R’s message, the packs are hugely popular with the younger pupils. Classroom sessions range from 45 minutes to an hour, these sessions offer an in-depth practical session challenging the pupils knowledge on what materials can be recycled such as ‘Think be before you throw’ –
placing waste in the correct designated bins, and how to recycle them as well as wider environmental issues.
All material is provided by Countrystyle for the classroom sessions, including giveaways and reward stickers.
