The Eco Council will be continuing this academic year and is comprised of children from Year 3 to Year 6. The Eco Council will be run differently this year as we will be unable to meet in person but our hardworking Council will have regular contact with Mr Nouri and Mrs Colclough. The councillors will also be given an ‘Eco-Book’ to write down ideas and suggestions from themselves and their classmates.
January Update 2022
Last week, the Eco Council met to hold a vote on what our Earth day activity will be for the whole school. We watched an informative film about Earth Day and debated the pros and cons of holding either a 'No Paper day' or a 'No Technology Day'. The council voted almost unanimously to hold a 'No Paper Day' on April 22nd to celebrate Earth Day. The council then wrote short speeches to relay the decision back to their classes. The Eco council will be meeting again in a few weeks to discuss and plan the details of Wrotham Roads first ever 'No Paper Day'!
November 2021 Update:-
The Eco Council have had their second meeting of the year and were brimming with fantastic ideas for what they want to implement now and in the new year ahead.
They have decided to nominate a light monitor for each class to help reduce the school's electricity usage. The council have also made a pledge to help keep our school environment tidy, so they will be taking it in turns to pick litter up in the playground at lunch time.
During their brainstorming session, the council have also come up with a plethora of ideas to put in place in the near future. If you want to know what some them are then swing by our Eco Council board by the school hall for a look!
We hope to have another strong year and build on these past achievements. We have achieved the RHS level 1 and 2 gardening awards ,which is given to schools who have focused on improving their outdoor green spaces. Eco Council will also be pursuing the Eco School Green Flag Award, which awards schools for their work to help the environment through practical changes to school life.
