Eco Committee

Welcome to our Eco Committee page!

As an Eco Committee, it is our job to make the school a more environmentally friendly place. We have representatives from each year group and meet regularly with Mrs Gibson to discuss our next actions!

 

 

Harvest Festival

Thank you so much for your generous donations to our Harvest Festival collection! As you can see, we were able to collect a huge amount of foods and household goods which Mr Emmett delivered to the Doddinghurst Road food bank to help people in our local community.

 

What is the Eco Committee?

Each year, we decide on an action plan which helps us to focus on different areas to improve.

Currently, we are working on the topics of Biodiversity, Transport, Energy, Waste and Marine.

 

We were awarded our Bronze Eco Schools Badge in June 2018 and achieved our Silver Eco Schools Badge in December 2018. We achieved our first Green Flag award in July 2019 and successfully retained this award in July 2021.

Waste

To reduce waste in our school, we currently recycle printer cartridges and batteries. We are able to send off the printer cartridges for money so please keep sending them in!

 

Biodiversity

Unfortunately due to COVID and the installation of our brand new demountable, our gardening plans were temporarily halted. However, this year we will be back out redeveloping the area behind the swimming pool and turning it into a beautiful wildflower garden. We are also cleaning out the pond so that we can make use of it in our Science lessons. 

Using the money from our printer cartridges, we have bought two bird feeders and some fat balls which will hopefully attract some more wildlife to our school.

 

Energy

This is a new topic for this year. Check back soon for how we will be saving energy in school!

Transport
