St Andrew’s Eco Update
In September 2018, we were once again awarded the Eco Schools Green Flag award for the 4th time. This accreditation is due to the hard work and dedication of our Eco Team. The assessor was very impressed and the children loved showing off all of their hard work.
We now have a new representative from each class in Years 1-6. Our Eco Warriors are Ethan, Ralph, Isabelle, Neo, Ava, George, Peyton, Freya, Lewis, Chloe, Katie, Charlotte and Grace. The Eco Team meet each half term and discuss different ways of making St. Andrew’s even more eco friendly. They always have fantastic ideas. If you have any ideas for the eco team, please let them know.
Our Eco Team worked exceptionally hard. In our Eco review, the assessor said, ‘Well done to everyone at St Andrew’s Primary School. The children I met were all very enthusiastic and knowledgeable on the eco schools work that they had been involved with. Keep up the great work.’ Well done, Eco Warriors!
The Eco Team have worked very hard on various projects, including Waste Week, Switch Off Fortnight and The Big Battery Hunt.
We already have lots of ideas for our new eco projects. The children have recently decided that they would like to make bird feeders to help the local wildlife. Hopefully, we will spot some birds during the RSPB Birdwatch this month.
We would also like to thank you for your support with the M & S Energy competition. This was a real community effort. The LED lights have now been installed and we can already see a decline in our energy usage.
