In DUCKS we celebrated No Carbon November through the lens of Waste Reduction. This initiative builds upon our Zero Food Waste drive, which was introduced back in 2022 and has been incrementally and purposefully embedded within curriculum learning and at assemblies.

At lunch time, our students are encouraged to serve themselves just as much food as they are sure they will eat, which also encourages the habit of conscious eating. Students who manage to eat all the food on their plate are recognized as having a ‘Golden Plate’ and win coveted house points too!

Zero waste consumption is also introduced to students as part of their curriculum learning around living a conscious and healthy lifestyle.

To celebrate No Carbon November, we ran a House competition that awarded the house with the most ‘Golden Plates’ for Zero Waste. The winning house will be announced in DUCKS assembly at the end of November.
