Our Super Eco School Council
Our Mission Statement:
We want to give evey pupil a voice and give our full support to any pupils who have concerns of any kind. We want to make changes that make our school even better. We will set ourselves new targets and work hard to achieve them. We hope to create a safe and healthy learning environment.
Welcome back to everyone. We hope that you all had a lovely Christmas.
Thank you to everyone who helped us reduce waste by recycling Christmas Cards and also donating gift bags to be re-used.
**WE NEED YOUR STAMPS - - - Please save any stamps that are from mailed envolopes and send in to school, we have teamed up with Cancer Research Bacup branch to help them collect stamps to help with their funds. Thank you.
We are a Bronze and Silver accredited Eco-School.
We have recently updated our Environmental review and it has shown us many areas for improvement.
One of the first things that was on our agenda in September was "HEALTHY SNACKS IN SCHOOL"
Children have become more aware of healthy eating at playtimes due to Eco-School Council members making posters, information being on school newsletters and more children encouraged to buy snacks from the school kitchen at break.
We have also launched a new recycling programme with Terracycle.
We are collecting any toothpaste related items at the recycling point.
Please see website for more information: https://www.terracycle.com/en-GB/brigades/colgate-uk
