Eco activities and competitions

Our Interclass Active Travel Competition continues...

During February Mr Gault's P4 class had the highest amount (69%) of Active Travel Journeys to/from school recorded and they'll hold the trophy for this month. Many classes should see an increase in their Active Travel journey's with 'The Big Pedal' soon to begin. Notes about this will be coming home shortly.

Wrigley Litter Less Campaign - Pick 5

We are into the fifth month of our 'Wrigley Litter Less Campaign' and today five more of our P7 girls (who will be representing us at the Eco Conference later this year) went out to litter pick inside and outside of our school grounds. The girls litter picked on the adjoining laneway at the bottom of the path and along the main road up to the entrance of our main gates. Today the girls collected one bin-liner (6kg) of litter.

As an Ambassador Eco School we are delighted to be involved in such a campaign, which is a joint initiative of the Wrigley Company Foundation and FEE, currently running in 15 countries. We want to not only reduce litter but also change long term behaviour.

 

 

School Eco Council - Eco Code Competition

 

Our School ‘Eco’ Council are inviting you to take part in another competition, which is to create a new ECO CODE.

This year, we would like our ECO CODE to be made as a character (which will be used as an ECO Council logo and replace the one on the top left of this note).

 

What is an ECO CODE?

  • Your Eco-Code should be your mission statement. It should demonstrate, in a clear and imaginative way, your school's core values and commitment towards improving its environmental performance and striving towards a sustainable future.

Competition details:

  • In your own time, create an ECO CODE CHARACTER (and their Mission Statement).

  • It can be created either using pen & paper, or on the computer.

  • Give it to Mr Gault before FRIDAY 08 FEBRUARY

  • When the School Eco Council meet again they will bring all the entries and will select a winning one which will be used as our School ECO CODE and LOGO.

  • Competition entry form is attached to this article.

Wrigley Litter Less Campaign - Pick 4

We are into the fourth month of our 'Wrigley Litter Less Campaign' and today four more of our P7 girls went out to litter pick inside and outside of our school grounds. With the builders being onsite, a lot of our grounds and currently inaccessible, although we still managed to bag some litter on the adjoining laneway at the bottom of the path and at the Windsor Lodge entrance. Today the girls collected one bin-liner (6kg) of litter.

As an Ambassador Eco School we are delighted to be involved in such a campaign, which is a joint initiative of the Wrigley Company Foundation and FEE, currently running in 15 countries. We want to not only reduce litter but also change long term behaviour.

Wrigley Litter Less Campaign - Pick 3

We are into the third month of our 'Wrigley Litter Less Campaign' and today four more of our P7 girls went out to litter pick inside and outside of our school grounds. Today they collected another two bin-liners (12kg) of litter which will help to clean up our surrounding area just before Christmas.
