Our School has recently registered with Eco-Schools and are on our way to achieving our first award. Our school eco-committee has completed an environmental review of the school and has decided that the areas which we need to focus on are the school grounds and biodiversity.
An Eco Committee has been formed. It hopes to create wild-life areas in the school, for example a wormery, battery and bird houses. We also hope to develop a vegetable garden, such as raised vegetable beds and fruit trees, food which can be used in the school canteen.
Involvement in Eco Schools will develop in the children a great interest in The World Around Us, which is a valued aspect of the curriculum. It will also provide endless opportunities to develop knowledge and understanding in this area.
