Eco Council

Unknown -3

 

Our Eco Council is made up of children in our school council and those who attend our Eco Warriors school club. The Eco Council meets regularly with Mrs Tipping to discuss how we can improve our school. They were instrumental in helping us to achieve our Platinum Eco Award.

Thanks to a contribution from the Woodlands Trust, we've been involved in planting trees around the school. We recruited the children's parents to come along to help us plant, as well as to educate parents by sharing the videos below about the importance of trees and how to make the perfect compost:

 

 

 

Members of the Eco Committee are ever mindful of the litter that is found around school and have made posters which are to be displayed at all entrances to school to ask that no litter is thrown onto school grounds. The group received the highest grade for 'No Litter'. Their enthusiasm is to be applauded.  

In addition to this, the children also addressed the dog fouling issues which we have on our school field by making posters and posting these around the community. They also created the video below to draw the attention of community members and social media users to help stop this problem:

Activities such as collecting waste paper and ink cartridges are vigorously pursued within the school. To see further ideas, please click on our Eco Ideas Pinterest board:

The Committees were very much involved with the Woodland Area in Park Hall and have worked tirelessly with the T.R.E.C team to create a pleasant, interesting, safe and spacious woodland walk for the community. 

 

'I enjoy being an eco representative because we have fun learning about pollution and how it affects the environment. Eco Council has helped me by teaching me how the 4 R's (refuse, reduce, reuse and recycle) works.'
