Our Eco Committee have recently achieved Green Flag status - they have worked exceptionally hard for this! 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
purchased 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
installed a diffusion tube at the front of the school
been awarded Green Flag status!
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
create links with the community forest
We had a fabulous time visiting YHA Langdale in the Lake District.
We took part in the following activities:
Environmental Art – Using Andy Goldsworthy as inspiration, the children explored shape and texture and the awe and wonder of the natural environment as they created their own pieces of natural ephemeral art.
Guided Nature Walk – This was a short, guided nature walk, taking in a range of different habitats and landscapes. Throughout the walk, the children were challenged to use their senses to discover the natural environment in different ways than they are used to.
We can now track the air quality outside of our school - how exciting!
Our sunflowers are growing nicely - we're very excited to plant them outside when they're a bit bigger and to see who can grow the tallest one
Miss Marshall was delighted by the huge success of our first virtual meeting - what fantastic enthusiasm and superb contributions from all Eco Councillors!
