Our new Eco Committee was formed at the beginning of the new school year. Made up of pupils from Year 2 to Year 6 we meet on a regular basis to try and make our school as eco-friendly as possible. We elected a chair person, vice chair, secretary and digital link who all help run the meetings. We are currently waiting to be assessed for our third green flag award and so are working very hard to make sure everyone knows how important it is to try and help save the planet! We will be concentrating on the seven areas of the Eco Schools programme and doing our very best to tackle an environment issues throughout the year.
The seven areas are:
Healthy living, school grounds
We will do our very best to adhere to our Eco Code.

A new look Eco Committee got together this week for the first time. Any pupil from Year 2 to Year 6 can now join the Eco committee. During our meeting we got together in groups and brainstormed the different ideas and thoughts we had for any action and priorities for our committee.
Here are some of the ideas:
- Making sure there is no litter in the playground.
- Planting different types of plants in lots of different places.
- Saving energy / saving power – turning off electricity; maybe having am energy saving week.
- Checking up on school recycling.
- Investigating food waste.
- Helping people locally and internationally with environmental issues.
- Saving water, including putting out pots to collect rainwater for the school plants.
- Saving wildlife and adopting an animal and by finding ways to stop people stepping on slugs and snails.
- Helping wildlife through creating habitats.
- Looking after birds.
- Using paper sensibly.
- Recycling wood to help with combating deforestation.
- Support ways to stop the deforestation of the Amazon.
- Looking after the local park.
- Re-planting the planters around the school.
‘Save the world so that is a happy place’ was a very apt comment written by one of the committee members during the session.
