ECO Group

Who are the ECO Group?

We are a team of pupils who meet regularly to discuss ways to make our school environmentally friendly.

How are we chosen?

At the start of the new school year, children who would like to be an Eco-warrior have to write a speech to explain why they should be chosen and what being Eco-friendly means to them.  The existing Eco team members listen to their speeches and a vote is held.

What do we do?

Every week the team carry out the following tasks:

  • Litter picking
  • Emptying paper bags
  • Checking lights and interactive whiteboards are switched off
  • Making sure taps are turned off

Our aim is to make our school an even better place for everyone.  We help the environment by recycling paper and card.  We also save the school money by reducing the amount of energy and water we use.  We encourage everyone to care for the environment at home as well as in school.

What is this year's main project?

 This year we are helping to re-develop the environmental site.
