We have linked up with the National Eco Schools initiavive. At the school we have a team of children who enrol as the schools carbon ambassadors. These ambassodors meet weekly to work on initiatives to support the whole school’s awareness of key environmental issues.
Areas worked on by the club so far include;
Reducing electricity use
Devloping our levels of recycling
Encouraging all children to make considered healthier snack and packed lunch choices
Some of the activies that the Eco Club undertaken include;
Provided each class with a recycling bin, run a competition to design a healthy lunchbox, lead a whoe school quiz to teach healthy food facts, conduct a snack survey, design posters to persuade us to use less electricity.
These have all helped us to achieve our Eco Schools Bronze Award !
We are now looking to move forward and achieve the silver.
Come and see the Eco School notice board outside the key stage one hall to see who the current ambassadors are and what is being worked on currently.
