We are the Eco Councillors, we work hard to improve our school environment. Mrs Selby helps us to think of new ideas and projects, we share our ideas with the rest of the children in the school and aim to keep our school a Green Flag Award school. We also like to help the local community for example by organising a collection for Oldham Foodbank.
Our Achievements 2018-2019
In September 2018 we were again awarded the Eco Schools Green Flag Award for all our hard work in the 8 eco areas. These include waste, litter, transport, water, energy, bio diversity, school grounds and global perspectives. The councillors had fun taking part in the RSPB Wild challenge and achieved their bronze award. To gain this award they took part in a wide variety of challenges including building a home for hedgehogs, bird watching and taking part in a wild flower survey. We were amazed by the support for the food collection jointly organised by our School Council; Oldham Foodbank presented us with a certificate for our efforts. The councillors also took part in the annual Switch Off Fortnight and Waste Week campaigns to promote saving energy and recycling.
Our Priorities for 2019-20
This year we want build on the healthy habits that we promoted last year.
Thank You Springhead
A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to our harvest food collection for Oldham Foodbank. We had a fantastic response and Oldham Foodbank were thrilled; they even presented us with a certificate. Well done Eco and School councillors for all their hard work helping to organise the collection.
