Eco Committee

Who We Are

We are the mighty Eco Warriors and our job is to help the planet by looking after our local environment and our school environment.

If you are interested about being an Eco Warrior for next year, or just want to find out what we do, ask any member of the Eco Committee (you’ll see us wearing a snazzy Eco Committee badge) in years 3- 6, or alternatively ask Miss Cooper.

What We Do

We look after our local environment in a number of ways; this year we have started a Litterbug scheme where our Eco Warriors volunteer to pick up the rubbish around the school (not a rubbish job I can tell you!), as this not only helps our school to look clean, but also helps to keep our environment nice and healthy.

Secondly, we have created and built a bug hotel! We are very proud to have such a fantastic outdoor environment at Churchfields where many different species choose to reside within. By providing the right habitats we can greatly increase the number of beneficial insects in our field. Some wild invertebrates, such as bumblebees, are declining in numbers in the wider countryside, so by providing homes we can contribute to their conservation.

Finally, we are also going to be running a few non-school uniform days and competitions to promote being an Eco-friendly school. Hopefully this will get you non-Eco warriors into being planet savers too!

Make A Difference

  • Daily Litter Duty – We have monitors in every class to help us do this correctly.
  • Weekly Eco Commitee meetings help us up to date and gives us the opportunity to feed back to our classes what we have discussed.
  • Class assemblies to promote recycle, reuse and reduce.
  • Poster competitions – encouraging everyone in the school to recycle and use the recycling school bins.

Being part of the Eco Committee was important because I like looking and experimenting with bugs and animals and what they do and how they adapt to the school environment.

I wanted to be a member of the Eco Committee because I have a lot of good plans for this amazing school.  I am also very good with animals as I have a number of pets.  I enjoy gardening with my family in my garden especially in the Autumn.  I want this school to be as eco-friendly as possible.  I would like to develop our field and our playground.  For example, we could have rubbish monitors or something like that.

I wanted to be in the Eco Committee because I would want the school to be clean and to make sure that the environment is clean.  Also because that way I can make sure people can recycle so we do not have to cut trees down so we can breathe.  Another reason is so we can spot people when they litter so then we can tell them to put it in the bin.  As an Eco Committee member I want to make sure that people turn off lights and taps.
