What is the St David's Eco Committee?
The St David's Warriors meet every few weeks to discuss how we can make our school a more eco-friendly place. Each year we write an action plan that outlines are important features that we would like to put in place for the academic year.
How do I become a member of the Eco Committee:
We begin each year by writing a speech to read in front of our classes to say why we would make good representatives of the Eco Committee. After a vote, the children are selected.
What happens at an Eco Committee Meeting:
At our first meeting, we carrying out our Eco Audit. We travel around our school and look for where we can improve upon. From this Audit we then form an Action Plan, which will last a year.
Each meeting we discuss a part of the Action plan and how we are doing. By the end of the year, we have evaluated our action plan and are ready to begin the process again.
Platinum Eco School:
We are a platinum Eco School. This is the highest level that can be achieved by a school. We achieved Platinum Status in June 2017. The Eco Committee worked hard to achieve this status and we have continued to work hard to maintain and improve upon our Eco community in St David's.
Every Friday, the Eco Committee work with Mr Bury (our caretaker) to collect the electricity readings to record how much is being used each week. We use the data to see if we can make any savings. We encourage staff to make sure their interactive whiteboards and PCs are switched off. If a room is empty, the lights have to be switched off. The Eco committee work hard with the classes to achieve this.
Reduce, Reuse & Recycle:
In St David's, we work hard to make sure that each class is Reducing the amount of waste, reusing items and they are recycling products that can be. Each class has a blue paper recycling bin and a general waste bin. It is the Eco Committee's job to make sure that each class is reducing, reusing and recycling. At the end of everyday, the Eco Committee collect data about how much waste and recycling is in the bins and then set targets for the following week.
How to get Involved with the Eco Committee:
If you would like to be involved or have a suggestion for our Eco Committee, please do not hesitate to contact your class representatives or Mr Shepherd! We always look forward to receiving your ideas.
In St David's, we have the option to recycle batteries. There are boxes located by the Eco board which we use to collect them. Please send any used batteries into school and we can place them in these boxes to be recycled safely.
Christmas Card Recycling:
Every year we take part in the Christmas Card Recycling competition. We ask learners to collect Christmas cards from Friends and Family. They will need to count the number they collect and bring them into school labelled with their name and total.
