This term Eco Council presented an assembly to the whole school about our plans for the future - including water saving, fruit composting and using sustainable water bottles.
Eco Council met with the Mayor of Penwortham to plant 3 fruit trees in our forest school area.
Before we broke up for the Christmas holiday the pupils helped the Eco Council and Miss McKenna plant 210 trees/saplings in the school grounds. This was to commemorate The Queen's Green Canopy: Plant a Tree for the Jubilee! Every child in school was involved and despite the awful weather all the saplings were successfully planted, whilst the children had fun and made memories. Thank you staff and pupils for all your help!
Thank you for all your support we managed to collect 2,286 points for the Morrisons 'Good to Grow'.
This means we have enough to order a water butt for our gardening area and a new compost bin to replace our old broken ones. The Eco council also ordered some strawberry seeds so we can have a go at growing some!
The eco council decided that they would start a fruit recycling scheme to turn all our healthy fruit waste into compost for us to use in the garden.
Our fruit and vegetable waste boxes arrived on Thursday, we labelled them all ready for each class. On Monday 11th October we distributed them to the classes. So now all of our fruit and vegetable waste will be going in our school compost bins. Our next job is to empty both of the compost bins!
