Celebrating Excellence through our Faith and Learning
St. Mary’s Eco Council 2018/19
The ECO-Council is made up of 12 pupils - 2 from each class, from Year 1 up to Year 6 - plus staff members. It will also be opened to parishioners, parents and governors who would like support the work of the ECO team.
The council meets approximately once or twice a term to discuss the topics on our Eco Plan
The aim of the council is to raise awareness of environmentally friendly principles and to support the school in applying an environmentally friendly approach. The Eco-Council representatives in each class are responsible for promoting eco-friendly actions, such as turning off lights, turning off the interactive whiteboard when not in use, monitoring the use of paper and ensuring paper is recycled sensibly.
They have also initiated a litter picking rota and been involved in the reduction of school waste from giving up plastic straws to composting food waste.
The Eco-Council is currently working towards the ECO School Green Flag Award.
This year’s Eco Council representatives are:
Year One (St. Nicholas): Marysia and Lance
Year Two (St. Elizabeth): Izzy and Sebastian
Year Three (St. Augustine): Daisy and Jakub
Year Four (St. Bernadette): Holly and Samuel
Year Five (St. Martin de Porres): Ellis and Oskar
