Eco Council 2022/23

15th Nov 2022

This year the Eco council will have a busy year ahead as we strive to achieve the Green Flag award from Eco Schools NI.  We have chosen the main topic of outdoor learning to focus on whole school.  Our 2 minor topics will be biodiversity and litter.  We completed an Environmental Review at the beginning of the year and will share our new Eco code with all classes. 

We also promote active travel in our school by participating in 'Ditch the Dark' day and the Sustrans 'Big Walk and Wheel' later in the year.  


The Eco Council work with Mrs Canavan and Mrs Lopez and have monthly meetings to discuss ideas and plan future events in our school.


The Eco Council recently cleared inside the poly tunnel area to help each class prepare their new gardening plot in the outdoor area. 


We look forward to the green year ahead!
