The Green Schools Committee are currently working on our 6th flag – ‘Global Citizenship – Litter and waste’. We have been working on an Action plan to achieve this goal. The plan includes raising awareness about Global citizenship, increasing the use of Fairtrade products used in the school by 50%, increasing the use environmentally friendly cleaning products in the school, planting 2 native trees, organizing a ‘Action day’ for the whole school.
The Green Schools committee continue to work on and maintain our previous 5 flags by monitoring and conserving the use of water and electricity and by recycling and composting. We also continue our efforts to attract biodiversity within our school grounds by planting wildflower seeds in our meadow, making birdfeeders, protecting our ‘Bug hotel’ and our ‘Hedgehog house’ to create safe habitats for all the different species.
We have also been busy working on a number of other projects including:
Recycled Christmas tree decoration competition 2021
Congratulations to everyone who took part and well done on creating some amazing decorations.
Picker Pals Programme
1st and 2nd class are currently taking part in the ‘Picker Pals Programme’ for the Green Schools. The children are taking turns bringing the picker pals pack home each weekend, which contains everything each child needs to go on a litter picking adventure. They are also using their picker pal packs together as a class, to clean up the area around our school. You can spot below the amazing job they did on their recent litter picking adventure. Well done everyone!
The Big Travel Challenge, February 2022
We are encouraging everyone to travel to school in a more sustainable way for 10 days in February. We have chosen walking as our mode of transport. We hope to see an increase in the amount of children walking to school everyday. Helping the environment and our fitness!
Good luck everyone!
