A BIG thanks to all the students and staff of École
George V School who collected and brought in plastic bags for this year’s “Bag
Up Manitoba” contest with Take Pride Winnipeg.
Together, our school collected over 27 000
plastic bags-that’s more than 2000 bags per class! Instead of ending up in the
garbage, these plastic bags will now be recycled into planter boxes,
birdhouses, and even a park bench!
This year, we were very close to meeting our
school’s goal to collect 30 000 plastic bags. Even though this year’s bag up contest is over, let’s
continue this year with enthusiasm to keep our communities clean, and commitment
Way to go, École George V School!!
