Autumn 22: The Eco-Council have hit the ground running in 2022-23. One of their first priorities this year was coming up with activities for Climate Action Day, and what a list they produced. There were some fantastic ideas, from tree planting to electricity switch-offs. As you’ll see from the photos, we had an action-packed day; students came into school wearing their 'greenest' outfits, they brought in a plastic-free lunch, completed an electricity-free hour and even got the opportunity to design an area of our new school field. Unfortunately, we couldn't fit all their suggestions in, but watch this space...I'm sure as the year progresse, a few more of their ideas will come to fruition.

Next up on the Eco-Council's agenda is planning for our upcoming trip to the Ardley Energy Recovery Facility. The children will be compiling questions that they can use to quiz the site's manager. They will be finding out what happens to our waste and how, as a school and at home, we can help to reduce it.

Towards the end of term, the Eco-Council will be using their newfound knowledge to come up with the school's Eco-Code, as well as design posters and videos demonstrating where our waste should go. Don’t forget to pop back to this page later in the year to watch what I'm sure will be some enlightening videos!

The Eco-Council are continually looking for new ways they can help their local environment. If you have any projects that you would like them to get involved with, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
