Aspiring young leaders throughout school, from Year 1 to 6 have the opportunity to apply for a role within the school’s Eco Committee. Members of the Eco Committee show fantastic and clever ideas which place them in control of environmental actions and projects within our school and local community. Our Eco Committee learn that they can make a difference to the world we live in and help lead the school towards these steps.
As part of the application process, children were asked why they wanted to be on the committee. Here are some of their responses:
"I love the environment and want to make a difference for my generation and save the planet from pollution. It would mean alot to me to create a better world."
"Sometimes when I walk to school I see rubbish and it makes me upset. Also people polluting the ocean causes turtles to die which makes me feel devastated. I love nature and helping the wildlife."
"I like to care for the world and would like to make our school more eco-friendly. I want to look after the animals and the planet since the plastic pollution is hurting them."
Our Eco Committee are currently working through the Eco School ‘Seven Steps’ (listed below). This process structures the environmental projects undertaken throughout the year. On completion of the steps, a Green Flag is awarded to recognise the hard work and commitment towards the projects, as well as the positive impact school has had on the environment.
Please take a look at our Eco School annual timetable to track our progress throughout the year.
