Eco School 2023-2024

Hello and welcome to Ballyoran's 2023-2024 Eco School Page!


Below you will find out all about our committee members and all the exciting things we get up to throughout the year to help look after the environment around us.


Athough our eco committee members will play a vital role in helping our school renew our Eco Schools Green Flag again this year, we cannot achieve this goal without the help of our whole school community. Let's all get involved together and help care for the world around us.

Meet our Eco Committee...

The eco committee have started to plant some flowers for spring- they will definitely be well watered this week...

Today we were out, even in the rain, tidying our tyre area. There were lots of overgrown weeds we had to pull out to prepare the area for new bark and new spring flowers.

On Tuesday the Eco Committee went out to carry out our second biodiversity survey to see if the biodiversity on our school grounds has improved.

Today the Eco Committee started making progress on tidying the outdoor classroom area. There was lots of litter to pick up first and then they started collecting all the sticks around the area and getting rid of the old rotten wood seats. We used our compost bins to help get rid of leaves and rotten wood.

The Eco Committee started their big school clean up today. They started in the eco garden and tidied up the planters, the areas around the trees and started to take apart our old bug hotel. They found lots of minibeasts hiding throughout the eco garden.

Year 7 enjoyed a super hot chocolate party as their prize for being the class to win our Journey to Santa challenge.

The eco committee announced the individual and class winners from our Journey to Santa challenge in assembly. Well done Eli, Kodie and Anderson as well as our Year 7 class for being the winners of our challenge.

Next week we begin our annual Journey to Santa challenge so the eco committee introduced the challenge and revealed our new display board in assembly.

As part of our Environmental Review we walked around our school and took a look at our green areas and we had a special surprise when we realised there were strawberries growing in our fruit and vegetable garden. The strawberries tasted great!
