Torpoint Community College will be opening its new project, ‘Gwithti’, on the 6th October.

Gwithti is the Cornish word for Storehouse and is the name that has been given to the community recycling store opening at the College. The store will be run by parents of students at the College as well as the Cooperative Trust Partner Schools at Antony and Millbrook.

On the opening day students at the College will be learning about recycling through Science and Design Technology projects.

Students have been collecting materials to recycle since April 2014 but for the project to be a success the College needs increased parental involvement, contributions of recycled materials from individuals and businesses and for community groups to use the store for its recycling needs.

Mrs Goodman, PE teacher and Cooperative Trust Champion at the College, said ‘It has been great to see the students working together to collect items to set up the store. We really hope that the Community will use the store on a regular basis when it opens.’

The store is situated in a classroom, with outside access, from the parking area at the top of the drive to the left of the College and will be open from 3.30-4.30pm on Wednesdays and Fridays during term time.

The College would welcome donations of recycling materials such as egg boxes, cereal boxes, buttons, wool and yoghurt pots to support the project.

Please contact Mrs Goodman at the College on 01752 812511 if you can support or help in any way.
