Our Eco Committee have achieved the 'Silver Flag Award' and are in the process of preparing for Green Flag Status. The children take on roles and responsibilities throughout the school - Eco-warriors red carding where lights and other electrical items have been left on, litter pickers supporting our caretaking staff in ensuring that the environment is clean and tidy and the recycling team supporting with the collection of plastic bottles, food waste and paper.

 

So far this year the Eco Committee have:

  • provided recycling boxes for every classroom in the school
  • devised a new Eco Code 
  • taken part in Switch-Off Fortnight (which the Eco Committee delivered an assembly about)
  • conducted an environmental review of the school and advised staff and pupils on how we can save energy
  • signed up for an Air Quality Monitor so that we can monitor carbon emissions
  • had a meeting with Bridie Finnan from Sefton Council to discuss how we can prevent carbon emissions 

 

Our plans now are to: 

  • grow fruit and vegetables for the school kitchen 
  • carry out litter picking duties on the school yard and in the local community
  • build a green wall at the front of our school
  • get our Green Flag award!
