OUR WORLD-WE CARE

 

Give us strength to care for our environment by being thoughtful about the way we live.

We will respect everyone how we would want to be respected.

Help us to support those who are less fortunate.

We are grateful that we have a roof over our heads and food on our plates.

It is our right as children to grow up without hatred and to live and be loved in a safe and peaceful world.

AMEN

 

ECO COUNCIL 14.05.18

 

James and KS2 not present.

Eco Day

The committee agreed that the Eco Day was a success. They suggested we needed to have more of these whole school day’s to keep children focused and aware of what being an Eco school is.

Eve suggested it would have been useful to have longer to complete and finish each activity.

Litter Pick

Billy thought that litter was becoming a problem around the village.

We discussed how we could raise awareness in school and the community. Perhaps a poster competition.

The Eco council could litter pick in the village and invite a village councillor in.

Bottle Count

Only fourteen bottles were collected for the first two weeks May.

This is good news as we are recycling less.

Big switch off - Billy and Isaac reported that the majority of empty classrooms had electrical equipment turned off at dinner time .Rubies usually had one or two lights left on.

Litter Pick in Kellington Park 

 

Spring Report 2016

Recycling has been the focus this term.

A meeting was held in January with Mrs Hesp and Mrs Newton (Eco governor) to discuss how to make the school and community more aware of recycling, other than the weekly collections from the Council.

 

Mrs Hesp explained this had been investigated and our options were limited because fees would be charged for some recycling collections.

 

Many children bring drinks in a plastic bottle with their lunch, and are usually thrown in the normal refuse bin.

The Eco council bought a bin for recycling plastic bottles, which is in the hall.  The bottles are counted and Mrs MacKenzie takes them to be recycled. They will record the amounts collected, hoping to improve as time goes on.

 

The paper recycling boxes have been misused recently, with items that cannot be recycled. The Eco council put labels on the boxes to remind everyone what to recycle.

An assembly was held by the children to raise awareness in school the importance of recycling.

Parents were reminded about the recycling bins at the Red Lion pub on the Friday letter.

 

We have made links with the Parish Council and will be doing a litter collection in the park on the 21st April.

 

Mrs Newton has attended all the meetings.
