Eco Team

The Eco-Team is a group of children from across the school who plan ways of making our school more environmentally friendly.

In April, we carried out a litter pick to coincide with The Great Cumbrian Litter Pick 2019 in collaboration with the Friends of the Lake District.

Fair Trade Fortnight – We held a Fairtrade tea and coffee afternoon on Friday and the canteen was bursting at the seams with takers for cups of Fairtrade tea or coffee along with slices of our baking. Shopper also purchased things from Pam and Eco team’s Fairtrade stall which sold £131.45 worth of goods. Thank you to everyone who queued so patiently and came along to raise awareness of this important issue.

Every year the 5th June is marked as the United Nations World Environment Day. This is a day to question what contribution you are making to reduce the catastrophic footprint humans make on our very precious planet; before it’s too late.

The theme for this year is air pollution.  Did you know that 90% of people around the globe are breathing polluted air each day and many children die each year because of air pollution.

The whole school have been busy exploring environmental issues – Bowfell have learnt about the importance of Hedgehogs, Skiddaw have learnt about the essential part bees play in our world and Scafell have been inspiring the school to make an environmental pledge when leading our assembly on Tuesday. It is so important for us all to feel each one of our small contributions add up to make a huge difference. What have you done today to work towards a cleaner, better world?
