Say hello to 2019's Eco Members:
They are ready and raring to help make sure our school is Eco friendly!
Eco Council is made up of one pupil from each class from Year 1 – Year 6, who are chosen by the class teacher. The aim of the Eco Council is to help the school develop as an Eco School.
The Eco committee is an ideal opportunity for our pupils to get more involved in the way Kings Meadow Primary is run and help it to be environmentally friendly. The Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers. Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. We also have lots of fun!
This year we will be focusing on the following projects:
The Eco Council will be running a competition to create a new Eco Code for the school. The children will be encouraged to come up with ideas about protecting our environment like, recycling, not wasting resources, saving energy and water, growing our own food, etc. The Eco Council will judge the competition and there will be a prize for the best Eco Code.
This term we will launch National ‘Switch Off Fortnight.’ The Eco Council will give a very informative talk in assembly to all the children about why it is important to switch off.
At Kings Meadow we are going to try our best to remember to switch off lights when we are not in rooms, switch off computers and projectors when we are not using them. The children will monitor this and remind us all. The Eco Council children are going to make posters to go around the school to remind us all to do it. Maybe you could have a go at home too!
Check back to see all they get up to over the year.
