Eco Club runs every 2 weeks on a Wednesday after school. It is led by the children and Mrs Davies. As a team we decide what we need to look at in order to help us remain an Eco Friendly school. We tend to the allotment, discuss ways to help children recycle, save energy and help the environment.
Currently we are discussing taking part in the 'Waste Week'. It will involve asking parents to send in to school their unwanted small electrical items which will then be collected by WEEE to be properly recycled.
Look out for a letter coming soon.

The Fair trade Breakfast!
A few members from our Eco club joined other schools in the town to celebrate fair trade goods. We all had a fair trade breakfast of yummy toast, jam, tea , coffee and orange juice! We found out that other items, not just food can be fair trade such as cotton! We were lucky enough to meet a fair trade coffee producer from Columbia who told us all about what fair trade means to her and her family. We had a great morning.
Home Grown Tomatoes!!
Our tomatoes finally ripened! The Eco team picked, prepared and served them to the whole school and the feedback was a resounding 'MMMMM!!'
You can also be an Eco Warrior! It is important for every one of us to look after the world around us.
