The Eco committee is made up of representatives from each class in KS1 and KS2.
We meet during lunchtimes and talk about how we can improve our school environment and look after our world.
During our meetings we have completed an Environmental Audit and have identified our priorities for this year.
We would like to -
We talked about the amount of rubbish generated in each classroom. We would like to introduce a scrap paper drawer in every classroom. We would like to have recycling monitors in each class to help ensure our waste paper is put into the correct bins.
We were worried about the amount of plastic that we throw away each day. We calculated that we are throwing away over 10,000 straws each year by using milk cartons. We are going to contact the milk provider and ask for our milk to be provided in recyclable containers with beakers to drink from.
UPDATE - The Eco commitee wrote to our milk supplier to request our milk was delivered in less packaging. As a result of the letter the milk is now coming into school in plastic containers that can be recycled. As a result of this we have earned our BRONZE ECO AWARD!
During March 2019 we will be taking part in WASTE WEEK
By completing our audit and creating our action plan we are working towards our ECO AWARDS. We received our Bronze Eco Award during Term 2
We have a display board in the main corridor - have a look and see what we are up to
