The Eco-Team is a group of children from across the school who plan ways of making our school more environmentally friendly.
We have two events coming up. On Friday 6th March we will be celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight by holding a coffee afternoon in the canteen between 3 and 4 pm. The pupils have been challenged to find the Fairtrade logo on food stuffs in their home and in the local shops. Then we’ve asked if thy could use 1 or more Fairtrade item in some baking and bring it in to sell on Friday. Please do come along, we look forward to serving you Fairtrade refreshments.
On Friday March 20th we will be taking part in the Great Cumbrian Litter Pick.
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?
