Aims of our Eco Committee:
- Kickstart our Eco School Green Flag Award
- Raise awareness of the current climate crisis
- Build upon current learning of Global Themes – Sustainable Development and Globalisation
- To inspire, motivate and empower a generation of future activists – ease ‘climate anxiety’
- ‘The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.’ Robert Swan
Across our school, from nursery to Y6, we have keen environmentalists who work with Mrs. Simpson-Smith & Mr. Wells to discuss projects and make core decisions to help us run our school effectively whilst thinking about our planet. The meetings last around 15 minutes and are held every second week. The class Eco-Committee representatives keep us all informed of the latest plans and happenings and update the Eco Board to share with everyone new information and actions.
Whole School Eco Day
To inspire everyone to get involved in climate change discussions ready for the COP26 in Glasgow, we held an Eco Day and as a school we discussed an important question: can one person make a difference?
Children realise that one person CAN make a difference! Many of our children have made a difference and in recognition of this, they have recieved a green Blue Peter badge for making three pledges: Power, Plastic and Plants. We are proud to get involved in world issues and care deeply about climate change.
