Welcome to the Eco Council!
The Eco Council is made up of two representatives from each year group in the school. We aim to make Thameside a school whose children appreciate the natural world and act responsibly towards the environment. Each autumn we elect a new team and come up with an action plan for the year ahead. Keep up to date with what we have been doing by visiting our display board in the activity area. If you have any suggestions, please tell your Eco Councillor.
This year, we are we will be focusing on reducing waste and thinking about how things can be reused rather than recycled. We are also aiming to gain our Eco-Schools Award, by:
- finding ways to increase eco-friendly travel to and from school,
- re-establishing the Green Lightbulb Award to reduce wasted electricity,
- promoting our Terra-cycle scheme to improve recycling opportunities, and
- planting more hedges or trees to offset carbon production.
