PUPILS learned about waste and recycling at a green fair.

Stamford High School held the event on Tuesday last week in the school hall.

The fair included a number of student-run activities and stalls, including a revamped fashion competition, “new to you” clothes, accessories, bric-a-brac and books, a raffle, games and the chance to make purses out of tetrapaks. There was also a stall selling “pants to poverty” underwear, bamboo fibre socks and handmade African Christmas cards. All the profits from the fair will go to Children in Need.

Biology teacher and fair organiser Mary Cade said: “It is very important to raise awareness about green issues and help the girls to think about how they can minimize waste and have a greener lifestyle.”

The fair comes as part of a wider theme across the Stamford Endowed Schools this year. Other activities have included completing a waste audit and a recycled fashion show.
