Eco Council at Colden

What is Eco Council?


Why do we have an Eco-Council? 

-To ensure our school is eco-friendly and prepares pupils to live with reflection of the environment.

-To make sure each class has a platform to voice their opinions.

-To discuss and raise issues related to the environment.


What happens in the meetings? 

We begin each year by completing an environmental review to find out our schools successes and areas for improvement. We then use this to create an action plan for the upcoming year. Throughout the year each Eco Councillor meets with their class to discuss ideas about changes and improvements to the school. The issues are then raised in meetings and Eco Councillors discuss how to move forward with these ideas.


What have we done so far?

We have worked with Blackshaw Head Parish Council and secured funding to begin work on our projects to improve the school. At the end of the spring term, we will be building a wormery and bee hotel, painting and replanting the planters outside, getting more equipment for the playground, and starting a weekly litter pick and tuck shop.
