European Week for Waste Reduction 2022 Chiswick House School participated in the European Week for Waste Reduction 2022 run by @ewwrmalta and @WasteServ. Ms Sabina and Ms Sarah organised several initiatives throughout the week, one of which was a collection of unwanted uniforms which were used during a Pre-Loved Uniform Sale.
