In March we took part in the Eco School campaign 'Waste Week'. The Eco Warriors met to discuss food waste in both the classrooms and the school kitchen. We decided that we would weigh our food waste the week before 'Waste Week' and the after 'Waste Week'. The Eco Warriors then reported back to their class teachers and children what had ben discussed and how they could reduce plastic and fruit waste in the classroom.
During the week the whole school became involved in finding out more about landfill and where our waste goes and about how we can reduce plastic waste in our lunch boxes.
Switch Off 2017
In November we took part in the 'Switch Off' campaign to raise awareness of making sure that lights and electrical devises were 'switched off' when not in use. The Eco Warriors undertook an audit to record lights and devises that were not being switched off when not being used. We have posters around school to remind everyone about our mission to reduce energy costs around school.
Over the campaign we reduced our energy consumption by 4%.
The Eco Warriors and the rest of the staff and children make sure that they 'switch off' their lights and devises and continue to save energy in school.
Well done Boundary!
Welcome to the Eco page of the website. We have been working hard this year to raise the profile and understanding of Eco issues with the help of the Eco Warriors.
They have been involved in organising and taking part in a number of campaigns with Mrs Shepherd (Schools Eco Leader) in conjunction with Eco Schools and the Pod.
We have successfully raised all the staff's and pupil's awareness of the need to reduce Energy across the school, identifying ways of reducing food waste and organising a 'Keep Boundary Tidy' Litter pick as part of the Big School Clean Up campaign organised by 'Keep Britain Tidy.
