The eco-council is a group of Year pupils who want to make an impact on our school and on our environment.
Everyday, they look in the classrooms to celebrate good practice in turning off lights to save electricity, and in keeping the classroom tidy.
Each week they nominate a class for the ‘Eco’ award. The chosen class will keep the trophy for the week.
Last year the Eco-council chose to focus on improving the outdoor environment. One important area for development was the school wildlife garden. The council conducted a survey with other pupils in the school to find out their thoughts on the garden and how they think it could be improved. The results of the survey are shown below:
