Our Eco Code
Give our planet another chance.
Our planet is getting warmer and ice caps are melting.
Getting refunds on our rainforests is impossible.
Reduce, reuse and recycle.
Everyone needs to play a part.
Electricity and water are valuable, so don't waste them.
Never drop litter, keep our world clean.
ECO council has held various meetings to date this year.
We have been discussing the management of our recycling program and how to solve the problem of litter in and around the school. The playground and school buildings are regularly litter picked. Children now recycle all fruit peelings and all classrooms have a recycling box for paper and plastics. The kitchen staff recycle extensively, including all their packaging. The staff room and office also now have proper recycling bins.
We are in the process of ordering new trees from the 'Woodland Trust' to place around our grounds and encourage wildlife. We have chosen some bushes to go around the Foundation playground and some trees to go into a wildlife area on the top field. These are due to arrive in November for planting.
The School Council aims to:
Involve all children in the running of the school
Give the children a voice
Represent the school
Improve the school.
School representatives have two very important jobs:
To represent the views and ideas of their classes at each meeting.
To let their classes know what decisions the school council has made and what ideas they are going to work on, on their behalf.
Reflections council is made up of pupils, staff and parents.
