TerraCycle is Eliminating the Idea of Waste® by recycling the "non-recyclable." Whether it's plastic rulers or pens from a school, TerraCycle can collect and recycle almost any form of waste. We partner with individual collectors including Sholing Junior School across 20 different countries. As a result we are able to divert millions of pounds of waste from landfills and incinerators each month.

Thank you Bike It Ray and Bike It Rachel
Bike It Ray and Bike It Rachel came into school to deliver scooter training sessions to all the children in Year 4. Not only did everyone have a great time(including Bike It Ray and Bike It Rachel) but lots of great scooter skills were learnt as well, including pavement etiquette and crossing the road safely with your scooter.
In addition to this, there was a Scooter Doctor session in the morning for anyone in the school who wanted to get their scooters checked over. A massive thank you to both Bike It Rachel and Bike It Ray.
