Pupils and staff at Cowbridge
Comprehensive School will be celebrating Go Green Day – making it bigger and
better than last year! Firstly, it will be a non-uniform day, but with a slight
twist. If pupils wear an item of green clothing they will pay 50p -
but if they fail to wear green, they’ll pay £1 instead. The greener the better! The money will go towards ‘The Size of
Wales’ charity and Eco-initiatives in school.
pupils and staff are being encouraged to leave their cars at home. It would be
great if everybody could travel in the
most eco-friendly way possible, by catching the bus, walking, cycling or
car-sharing on Go Green Day. The Eco-Committee will be
collecting information on how pupils and staff travelled to school during
registration and we hope to improve on last year’s results.
a FairTrade cake sale will be held during key stage three and key stage four/five

On Friday 10th October it is the very first “Tasty Business” street food extravaganza! Tickets are selling fast! The Bar 44 street kitchen van will be arriving in school between 9.15-9.45. You are not allowed to visit the van until lunch time as it will be too busy preparing delicious food for you all to eat! The menu was devised by pupils with the aim of providing a healthy nutritious meal.
Tickets from the canteen are available for £2 for the meal deal. Also Barr 44 have agreed to do a small taster dessert for customers of the meal! For example Churros!
For this day only the diners will be allowed to eat outside, but only in allocated area shown in the picture above. There will be signs showing where to eat and extra bins will be provided. Please make sure you leave the area clean and tidy so that this fun event will be allowed to return and from another country! The paper that the taco wrap is served in, is biodegradable!
The Vale has also provided the 2 small gazebos for piñatas and drinks to be served and as a backup in case it rains!
Remember to buy your meal deal from Tuesday- Thursday! Tickets are selling fast and furious, don't miss out on a taste of Mexico!
