Eco Council

Our Eco Council  is run by Miss Cleveland, but is led by our enthusiastic Eco Warriors!

Meet our elected Eco Warriors 

About Us

In Eco Club, we explore environmental issues and encourage children, and in turn parents and other adults, to be responsible citizens in the use of the world’s resources.

We take a number of different approaches to help children understand some of the issues of sustainable development through the following units:

Litter & rubbish

Transport

Energy

Healthy living

School grounds

Water

Waste

Global perspective

Biodiversity

 

Eco tip of the week:

 

Even when electronics and appliances are turned off, they still consume energy if plugged in the electrical outlet. Conserve energy by teaching older children to unplug their game systems, computers, chargers, or audio equipment. Little ones can participate too by becoming the family “plug police” and inform grownups of any unused household equipment that is plugged into an electrical outlet.

 

To try and promote active travelling to school, we've organised for 'Dr Bike' to come into our school. This is a FREE event where everyone from the community can come and get basic bike repairs, bike checks and cycling advice. We're very excited about this because the week after, 10th October- 14th October, we will be holding a walk/cycle to school week! Please come along and take advantage of this FREE event to help us do our bit to save the environment and stay healthy. 
 
Thank you,
Eco Warriors
