Eco Council 2022-2023
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 this year 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.
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.
