The Eco Council have been sharing ideas about how we can support positive changes at HFS to make an impact on protecting and preserving our environment. We look forward to sharing outcomes in our forthcoming assembly in February.
Eco Travel To School Results - Spring 2015
We were so pleased to hear this week that Key Stage One children won an award on behalf of Holy Family in the Eco Travel competition. They have won a trophy for the highest percentage of children NOT travelling by car to school. We look forward to taking a photograph with some of the children and adding it to the site with our trophy, which will proudly go in the trophy cabinet.
The Eco-Schools Programme
Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a simple framework to help make sustainability an integral part of school life. Eco-Schools can help enhance the curriculum and get the whole school united behind something important.
Our mission is to help make every school in the country sustainable and to bring about behaviour change in young people and those connected to them so that good habits learned in schools are followed through into homes and communities.
Our Eco Council is made up of children from each class. They meet to work upon the Eco School Action plan.
A Year 6 reflection on the role of class Eco Representative
"I am an Eco Council representative for year 6. This is a very important job for school as it keeps it running smoothly, with no rubbish lying about. To do my job, I check when the recycling bins are full and empty them into the outdoor recycling bins. I enjoy my job because it makes me feel good to make sure that the school is clean and healthy."
