School asks pupils not to send Xmas cards

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Children at a primary school have been asked not to send Christmas cards to friends to help save the environment.

Head teacher Jonathon Mason wrote to parents suggesting students send a single card to the class rather than individual ones.

He said children at Belton Lane Primary in Grantham had expressed concern about the environmental impact of cards.

His approach has met mixed reaction, with some comparing him to Charles Dickens' character, Ebeneezer Scrooge.

But one parent, who did not wish to be named, told the BBC that the letter had "been taken out of hand".

Paper is a renewable resource and easily recycled.  

Dear parents,  Let's get ridiculous.

Hahaha :lol:. That's rich coming from a school. Unless school has changed significantly, they use hella paper on pointless things everyday.

Don't misunderstand. I think it good to teach kids to be conscious of our impact on our environment. But this just seems silly

It probably has changed quite a bit and much of what used to be paper now I'm guessing are word docs and pdf's.
