This month has seen the Eco Committee having their first meeting of the academic year. They elected a new Chair, Secretary and Treasurer and set up a task group to go through the annual Environmental Review and agree on this year's Action Plan. As an Eco-School we have Ten Topics to work through and this year have decided to continue with 'Biodiversity' and 'Marine', which we started last year, and, at our new Chairperson's request, 'Global Citizenship'. We have received our Green Flag for last year, and have already put in our application for this year.
As you can imagine, there is a lot going on in the Eco Room every day! On Mondays we have Mindful Monday when the children can sit listening to music whilst colouring in mandala patterns. Tuesday and Thursday are our crafting days. We make friendship bracelets, bookmarks and 'wish sticks', using recycled or natural materials. Warrior Wednesdays are for researching and campaigning on environmental issues, and Fridays are set aside for the older members of the Eco Committee to do their Energy Monitoring and recycling jobs. Mrs Ryder's afternoon groups will soon be up and running again and the children will turn their attention to replanting the wooden planters in the playgrounds. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us! 🙂🌞
Please don't forget to send in your used batteries, home printer ink cartridges, and pens and felt-tips for school to send off for recycling so that we can earn points for money to be donated to charities of our choice, as well as reducing the waste that is incinerated or sent to landfill.
Sudell's Eco Warriors are definitely making a difference! ♻️
