"Learning and Growing Together in Faith and Friendship"

Eco Council

Eco-Schools in an International Award that recognises when schools are making considerable achievements in being an eco-friendly environment which prepares children to live their future lives with consideration for global issues.


We have an active Eco Council with two pupils representing their class from Year 1 to Year 6.  Each year we hold an election when candidates are voted for by their classmates. Hopeful candidates have to tell their peers why they would make a good Eco Councillor.

Members of the Eco Council meet with Mrs Clarkson to discuss and work on a wide range of matters relating to our school environment, the local environment and sometimes global issues. These can range from encouraging recycling, monitoring energy usage and litter reduction. The ideas all come from the children!


Eco Prayer

Loving God,

Thank you for the world you created.

Guide us to follow the Word of the Lord, giving us the strength to look after

our environment, keeping it clean and safe, showing its beauty.

We pray that we can follow your teachings,

showing kindness to others,

showing consideration

and giving thanks for all that is good in the world.

Help us to mirror you Lord,

through each day and night as we strive to keep our world a beautiful place for generations to come.
