Eco Council 2023-2024
Our Eco Council are passionate about making Whitefriars and our local area a more environmentally friendly place. Two class representatives are elected from each class (year 2 – year 6) creating an Eco Council of 20 children.
So far, we have been busy with the following:
- Tackling the amount of litter on our field and in our local area. We have encouraged volunteers to use the litter pickers at break and lunchtimes. The Eco Council launched a whole school poster competition to make an Anti-litter poster. We had so many wonderful submissions it was hard to pick the winners.
- The winning posters were made into hard copies and displayed around the outside of our school gates.
The Eco Council have created writing equipment recycling bags for each class to collect old pens/writing equipment. We had something similar in previous years. Below is what can/can't be collected. These will be taken to Rymans to be recycled.
Future points to action:
- We are in the process of adding areas of wildflowers to our school grounds to link with the King’s wish for his coronation.
- To contact local garden centres via letter/email to see if they will provide pollinator friendly plants for the beds outside Year 4/5.
