At all PA hosted events waste reduction is a priority. Accordingly we encourage the school community to work together with us to minimize plastic and non-recyclable waste. Suggestions include
- Serving items that do not require cutlery or disposables
- Children & parents are encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottles or other containers
- Be part of the green team by sorting waste products into recyclable bins when possible.
