Eco Team


The Eco-Team is a group of eager representatives from each year group across school, who plan ways of making our school more environmentally friendly. This can be in the form of organising litter picks, taking part in Switch Off Fortnight and running coffee afternoons for raising the profile of suitable causes such as Fair Trade.

Our Eco Team often venture out into our community with our litter pickers. We mostly find plastic bits, some of which were very tricky to pick up with our grabbers!

We also held second hand uniform sales. We host these second hand uniform sales every term so please keep safe any suitably clean and good quality uniform and PE kits to send in when we let you know the next date.

Our Eco Team also get involved in a wider local community projects such as Greening Levens – introducing a series of small challenges to encourage us all to take our next steps in reducing our carbon footprint. We created Gerry the Gardener – our scarecrow to help raise awareness of the Greening Campaign launch as well as prepared our school greening challenges and running second hand uniform sales.

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

Year 5 & 6 wrote poems on an environmental theme and Years 2,3 &4 learnt more about plastic pollution and designed eye catching posters to spread the word. 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?

 

The whole school have also been involved in contributing to our new community garden.  Look out for more news about this in our website blog.
