At the beginning of the year, each class in Key Stages 1 and 2 are invited to elect a council member who will help to look at the way the school can become more environmentally friendly and champion environmental changes within our school.
Children are requested to put a short paragraph together detailing why they would make a real difference as part of the Eco School Council and their class members vote anonymously.
The elected members meet regularly, giving up part of their lunchtimes to attend meetings and discuss issues including:
- Recycling paper and glass
- Recycling the milk bottles
- Helping our local community
- How to make our school community greener
- Saving water
- Keeping our school tidy
We are currently participating in one of the largest recycling challenges in the UK with the Big Battery Hunt. The Eco-council have been responsible for handing out battery collection boxes and we hope to fill a metre-high container! Get recycling please.
