Eco Council

Meet our new Eco Councillors for this year!

Waste Free Wednesdays!

On ‘Wear Green Be Green’ Day our Eco Council led an assembly to explain our ‘Waste free Wednesdays’ initiative to the whole school. They did a brilliant job explaining the importance of reducing waste and recycling and reusing things where possible. They shared lots of good ideas and tips for packing a waste free lunch including using reusable containers and water bottles and avoiding single use plastic items. They will continue to monitor the amount of rubbish in our bins this term to measure the impact of our ‘Waste Free Wednesdays’ initiative.

Waste Free Wednesday Assembly!


Have a look at some of our Eco-Council initiatives:


Weighing rubbish!

The Eco Councillors did a wonderful job of leading assembly, informing all pupils and staff about our upcoming Eco initiatives this year.

Our Eco Code

The Eco councillors have been carrying out 'spot checks' on classroom bins - weighing how much rubbish is in our general waste bins!

The Eco council recently led a school assembly to ensure all pupils and staff know exactly what rubbish goes in which bin and to encourage everyone to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle! They also shared information that they learnt during the visit from NI water and handed out a brand new reusable water bottle to every pupil!
Check out this video which introduced their assembly:

Pupils were very excited to recieve their new resuable water bottles! Thank you NI Water!

We are now recycling crisp packets and used pens throguh Terracycle - all helping us to reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill.

Thumbs up for the first Eco meeting of the year!
