Eco Council

Posted by Miss Mackie on November 30th, 2012

It is the end of Switch Off Fortnight! Lots of families have taken the pledge to Switch Off! We even ran a competition to win some bug themed wind up torches! The winners are yet to be decided! Each class has won a certificate to congratulate them on their successes so well done everyone!

Coming up after Christmas, we have decided to have an Eco-Day where we will have non uniform, instead opting to wear our Eco colours for the price of £1! Also, we will be selling the Eco-bands, including the infamour glow in the dark one, at 50p each!

Have a look at our EARTH Eco-Code under the ‘Campaigns’ tab!

Last term we had a fantastic response with the number of children who brought in small electrical items to be recycled. We were in competition with a number of other schools in Stockton to see who could recycle the  most – and we scooped 2nd place winning £250! Well done and thank you to all the children and their families who helped to contribute. The new eco council for 2012 will need to decide how that money will be spent.

Additionally, one lucky child from the Stockton area was in with a chance of winning an iPad. Well, as luck would have it, our very own Aimee won! Well done to her! It just proves that recycling is definately worthwhile!

We have already commited to the WEEE electrical recycling scheme for the next school year. Do you have anything to bring in? Have you any ideas on what eco-council could spend the money on? Also, have you any ideas on what eco council should focus their attention on for this coming year?

Porridge and Eggy Bread

The children in Kitchen Garden Club made porridge and eggy bread and then celebrated their success with a cup of strawberry smoothie which they made using our home-grown strawberries.  It was delicious.


Eco Council

Eco Council have been working hard to help us save the environment with small steps around school. Have you seen our E.A.R.T.H code?

A massive thank you to the Eco-Council for Spring term who have successfully implemented the new Eco-Code!

In the summer term, we will be continuing to promote the  E.A.R.T.H code with the new Eco-Councillors, and will be investigating healthy eating in our school. Take 10 seconds to consider …what have I eaten that was good for me today?

The Growing Greener programme was initially funded by Creative Partnerships, the UK's flagship creative learning organisation operated by Creativity, Culture and Education. The programme now embodies a greater part of our whole school ethos and curriculum to provide children with relevant, meaningful and inspiring experiences to enhance and improve their learning.

We are still recognised as a School of Creativity for the Creative Partnerships programme. We continue to keep this title in recognition of our provisions for creative learning across the school.
