    Litterless Lunches
    Willowbank School is proud to say that we have been a part of the Enviro Schools program for over 10 years. To begin the year we would like to focus on the relationships between people and their environment.
    Last year we were so impressed with the efforts that Willowbank School community displayed with their litterless lunches. We want to continue this throughout 2015. We hope to see by the end of term one everyone having a go at bringing lunches that are free of plastic waste.
