DIY Decorating and Rubbish Collection

Description

A secondary school in Surrey shares its innovative ways of saving money, including paying sixth formers to help with maintenance and reducing rubbish collections, in this school finance resource.

At Greenshaw High School, sixth formers give the school a fresh coat of paint during the summer holidays. Business Manager Sue Buddery employs the students, paying them the minimum wage, which saves substantial sums compared to hiring professional contractors.

The site manager is on hand to give initial training and to supervise the students during the two to three week schedule.

Sue also explains how a compactor, which crushes waste in a skip, saves the school money as less rubbish collections are required.
