Green School 2017-2019

Friday 21st September 2018

Our green school committee gave a fab presentation today to all classes. We all looked at the water cycle together and discussed it. Then children were given an opportunity to draw their own water cycle, it was great fun. All children were then given a chance to complete a questionnaire in class so as to give us an idea as to how much water is being used by ourselves and whats being used at home.We sent the same questionnaire home to be filled by parents. We await the results and will then graph our results. We gave each child a sheet of water tips to be taken home in the hope of reducing the amount of water used.

Green School Committee 2018-2019Over the next two years (school years 2017-2019), our school will be trying very hard to achieve our third Green Flag.

We have also assigned members of our committee the positions of ‘Tap Monitors’
These children will ensure taps are off or not dripping,.  We have recently carried out environmental review in our school.  Our aim is to reduce the amount of water we use in our school.

We will also continue our work on Energy (2nd Flag) and Litter/Waste (1st Flag). We will continue to conserve energy and keep an eye on our composting/recycling.

Please keep an eye on our website and Green Schools notice board for upcoming Green School events.  We will have a range of activities from poster competitions to Green School water day and many more for all to enjoy.
