Our Eco Club are democratically elected to champion the environment in both the school and wider community. They ensure that we all follow three basic rules:
When the children first met they decided that they wanted a name that was unique and demonstrated what the committee was all about. They chose the name 'Ecoheads' as during meetings everyone 'puts their heads together' to think of the best actions that we can take to improve the environment that we live in.
National Clean Air Day
- Thursday 8th October 2020
Walk to school month
- October 2020
Week commencing 5th October we will be promoting a national campaign for walking to school. This year the theme is ‘Health and Well-being’ and the benefits that walking can bring for both physical and mental health which is so important during these unprecedented times.
We appreciate not everyone can walk all the way to school with some living too far away but you could always park a few streets away and walk the last bit of your journey. At the end of each week during October, each class shall conduct an audit to monitor how many children have walked to school. A certificate shall then be awarded to the class who has the most children walking to school.
Below are links to video animations to help promote the campaign.
