Mary Leask and Anona Hughson came for lunch and to talk about the waste audit that they had done for the school. We could still save some resources but they were very pleased with us and said we had tried hard to be careful with our resources and be good reusers and recyclers. They were very pleased about how little food waste we produce and said we have the lowest amount of food waste of any school in Shetland. Thank you Elsie for giving us such good dinners!
