Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging millions of children across 67 different countries, making it the largest environmental schools programme in the world.
At St Ursula’s we are very excited to be working towards the Eco-Schools Award.
We will be updating this page regularly with our ideas and activities as we work towards the award so please check back for updates on our progress.
Our Eco-Committee consists of children and adults across the school who all share an enthusiasm for being eco-friendly.
Our Eco-Committee is made up of children from all year groups:
- Isabella (Reception)
- Finley (Y1)
- Hugo & James (Y2)
- Blake & Bonnie (Y3)
- Imani & Isla (Y4)
- Stevie (Y5)
- Ellie, Mia & Theo (Y6)
And the following staff members:
- Miss Bryant
- Miss Watts
- Mr Todd
- Mr Arthur
The children have all been voted on to the committee by their peers.
What We Are Busy Doing…
We have planted crocus bulbs near the pedestrian gate entrance to the school. The bulbs were kindly donated to us and should flower in Spring – look out for them!
We have begun to think about what changes we would like to make at St Ursula’s. Hugo is particularly interested in recycling and litter picking. Ellie and Mia have come up with a reward system for classes that are remembering to recycle and save energy by turning off lights and boards when they are not in use. We hope to introduce this across the school soon.
