Our newly formed Eco Council is made up from our Pupil Governors and Junior Travel Ambassadors. We are working towards Eco-Schools Green Flag accreditation. The reasons we have decided to embark on this journey is that we want to look after our planet by highlighting the effects of climate change, plastic pollution, diodiversity loss and other environmental challenges including sustainable travel. We hope that by doing this it will empower our pupils with the passion and skills to protect our planet now and throughout their lifetimes.
We have started this journey by completing an Eco-Schools Environmental Review which we will then turn into an action plan. Our initial ideas include:
The Eco Council also have lots of ideas about fundraising including recycling clothes.
They have also launched their first competition which is to encourage the reuse and recycling of Christmas materials over the Christmas break. See attached poster:
