  Welcome to our ECO page  

 

Meet our 2017-18 Eco members....

 

 

Eco meetings

The next ECO committee meeting is Friday 26th January 2018 at 1pm in Mrs Power's classroom. 

 

During the November meeting we had a visitor from Eco schools. The meeting was another great success and we started to plan our Eco assembly which will be shown to the school on Tuesday 21st November. We also looked at ways of teaching the younger children how to recycle their milk cartons and we will be getting food waste bins to put out on the yard. 

 

The October meeting was a great success. Maddie typed up the minutes for this. We discussed rules for classroom recycling and planned an assembly to perform to the rest of the Juniors. Children came up with ideas to raise money to improve our school grounds and we have a litter pick up competition between the classes in January....watch this space!

  

 

Got a suggestion?

If you have any Eco suggestions you can jot them down on a piece of scrap paper and post them in our wooden Eco suggestions box found in the school entrance area.  Alternatively you can speak to Mrs Power or your class Eco member.

 

COMPETITION TIME!!

We are at that time of year again where you can enter the ECO CODE competition.

You have to design an ECO CODE for our school. Entries need to be on A4 paper and handed in to Mrs Power by Thursday 12th October. Entries will be judged by the Eco team and the winner announced the week after. There is a prize for first place and the winner entry will be displayed all around our school. See below for other examples of ECO codes to get an idea;

What is Eco schools?

 

The Eco-Schools Programme encourages pupils to engage with sustainable development and global citizenship issues.

Pupils take key roles in decision-making and participation in order to reduce the environmental impact of the school. In this way, Eco-Schools extends learning beyond the classroom and develops responsible attitudes both at home and in the wider community. 

One element of the Eco-Schools Programme is the establishment of an Eco-Committee – the driving force of the project. This is made up of pupils, staff, governors and parents who encourage the involvement of all members of the school community. The Eco-School committee process provides a useful model for effective communication and decision-making.
