Green Tree School Award
Recently, our school has been awarded the ‘Gold Award’ as part of the Woodlands Trust ‘Green Tree School’. To achieve this award, the Eco Warriors have taken part in and led a range of different activities. For example, they have helped to promote recycling across the school, explored initiatives to help cut our CO2 emissions and discussed ideas in school assemblies.
This year, the Eco Warriors team will be completing different projects and activities as we work towards achieving the ‘Platinum Award’ for our school. These activities will be pupil-led and cover a range of different curriculum areas. The aim is to make learning both inside and outside the classroom fun and engaging.
Here are some links to Eco websites. They have tips and tricks we can all use to help save the planet.
