Eco School Council
The Eco Council are also chosen by the pupils. One pupil represents each year group from Years 1 to 6. They make sure that everything in school is as eco friendly as possible! They meet regularly, they organise posters and assemblies to promote energy saving, recycling and litter picking. They run the school garden where produce is used in school or sold within the local community. This is a self-funding scheme to facilitate the development of innovative eco projects, both within the school and the local authority. An additional role is to organise community textile recycling, coordinate regular on-site litter picks and innovate on things eco.
