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!
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!
