The children are very excited about our mission to become an international Green Flag Award Eco-School. As a school, we are fully committed to educating all our children about the environmental issues facing our world and helping them understand that we are all responsible for making our future more sustainable. The children have been introduced to our ‘Pledge Tree’, where pupils and staff alike are encouraged to make an ‘eco’ pledge, write it on a leaf and stick it on the pledge tree. The idea is that the tree ‘grows’ throughout the year as more pledges are made. They are also excited about making Ecobricks and hope that we will end up with enough of them to make a structure of our own.
We held our first eco meeting at lunchtime today which focused on Energy, Water and Waste. Our eco-monitors worked really hard in the meeting and came up with some fantastic ideas, which we will be exploring in the coming days. They are already proving to be a very valuable part of the team. Thank you eco-monitors!
