St Mary’s Eco Council consists of an active group of committed children who share a passion for eco issues and a love for our planet.
Similar to our School Council, interested children put together a manifesto, outlining reasons why they should be elected and then travel to each class to deliver their ideas.
A committee is elected; consisting of Chairperson, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary. Each class nominates and elects a Class Rep to attend meetings, share ideas and feedback Eco News.
In St. Mary’s we are very fortunate to have such a wonderful large site to enhance our outdoor provision and the Eco Council seek opportunities to develop, sustain and improve our whole school environment.
An example of some recent initiatives undertaken by our current Eco Councillors include:
- The creation of a catchy slogan, encapsulating our Eco vision
- Focus has been placed on reducing waste, conserving energy and water
- Working in conjunction with our Forest School to develop an Eco Code of Conduct for everyone to follow
Our passionate team of Eco Warriors in school are very excited to work on projects and initiatives to enhance everyone’s understanding and knowledge of how we can become an Eco Friendly school. Twitter and Newsletters will inform our parents and friends of St. Mary’s of new developments in our school.
