Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging millions of children across 64 different countries, making it the largest environmental schools programme in the world.

Eco – Schools enhances pupils skills, raises environmental awareness and improves the school enviornment.

Here at Bowerham we have a very special and dedicated team of “Eco – Warriors” who support the school in being as environmentally friendly as it can be!

Keep updated with any of our Eco – news via this page! We can’t wait to share with you the exciting projects we will take part in!

The Eco warriors have been working hard to create an action plan and have decided on the three topics they would like to focus on.

These are: litter, the school grounds and healthy living.

 

 

 

****SWITCH OFF FORTNIGHT****

 

Our Eco-Council Warriors want to encourage everyone at school to reduce, reuse and recycle!

It is important to use less electricity in our school because using electricity and gas costs money and also has an impact on our planet.

So next week – Monday 20th will be the start  of our switch off fortnight.

During ‘switch off fortnight’ we will carry out surveys around school to check that lights and computers have been switched off and work out how much money we could save by this time next year.

Lights, computers, printers – you name it – we’ll switch it off if it’s not being used!

Perhaps you can join us and switch off at home too!

Remember…

“Stay green and support your Eco – team!”

The Eco warriors have been working hard towards achieving the green flag. Here is our action plan showing all the different projects we are working on.

The Eco Warriors and Rota Kids enjoyed litter picking at Greaves Park recently.

The children worked hard and cleared the park and play area of litter and filled bags full of rubbish.

The children enjoyed making our local environment clean and tidy and safe to play!

We will plan another litter pick soon!

Come and see our new information zone in the shed on the trim trail. There is lots of interesting information about plants and animals that you might find in our school grounds or locally.

 

Our next project is the repair our eco shed. We have collected the bottles – thank you for your donations! – and we are ready to start building. Keep an eye out for updates on our progress and remember:

Year 6 have been investigating global warming. They found out lots of interesting information and created these bright and colourful posters to show us what they found out. Well done year 6!
