The Eco Committee has also been busy. Each class has an Eco Committee representative who attends Eco Club meetings. The Eco Committee are working hard to achieve an Eco Committee award. The first thing they did was to complete an audit to see what we are doing really well at and what we need to improve.
One of the areas the Eco Committee considered was how we can use less electricity. We went around the school once all the children had gone home to see how many lights and computers had been left on. We were all surprised at the number of lights that were on even though nobody was in the room. The Eco Committee set about making posters to remind staff and children to turn off the lights when leaving a room.
The Eco Committee are now looking at the amount of single use plastic we use in school and have arranged to speak to the kitchen staff to see how we can limit the amount of single use plastic.
