Eco-cOUNCIL 2019 - 20
We did it again! We have kept up our hard work and now we are a silver award eco-school! This is because our teachers involve the environment in our education and we let you all know what we are getting up to in newsletters, on the website and through twitter. Well done and thank you for all the help that pupils, staff, parents and local businesses have given us.
Do you want to see some of our work this year on environmental education then take a look here?
Although we haven't been in school lately our children from all over the school have been excellent eco ambassadors! Our team in school have made bird feeders, children at home have been exploring their environments and finding lots of animals they never knew where there. The biodiversity of both school and our homes are fully being explored. Well done!
On Sunday 15th March, several families came along to join us at our second grounds day. It is always a pleasure to have so many kind volunteers and we really appreciate the hard work you throw into the day. We dismantled several old sheds and cleared areas that needed rejuvenating! A lot of work went in so thank you.
Well done! We did it! We have managed to achieve our Bronze eco - school award. To achieve it we had to:
- Set up our eco - council
- Carry out an environmental review
- Complete an action plan.
Our next aim is to get the silver award by linking our eco work to the curriculum and inform everyone frequently with all the activities we have been up to.
Eco Day – Just One Tree Event
As part of our ongoing ‘Environmental impact’ and the Eco Councils work, the whole school took part in the JUST ONE TREE non-uniform day on 21st November.
We had a great time learning about waste, recycling, improving schoolgrounds, biodiversity, healthy eating, water and marine life. We have explored these through all areas of the curriculum and children had a smile on their faces after working hard. Just One Tree makes it simple for everyone to contribute to collective action on the climate crisis because just £1plants 1 tree. We raised a total of £212.50 which is a fantastic contribution. Following this event, we have now earnt the school the 'Eco Schools Bronze Award.'
We are looking forward to our next experience of supporting the environment.
Eco Council Leader
Just One Tree is a non-profit initiative removing CO2 from the atmosphere through global reforestation. Just One Tree supports established reforestation companies, namely the International Tree Foundation and Eden Reforestation Projects, who plant in areas severely affected by mass deforestation such as
Kenya, Madagascar, Haiti and Indonesia.
In doing so they have the greatest positive effect on global warming whilst simultaneously alleviating extreme poverty within impacted communities through training, education and employment.
