The aim of the Eco Council is to help the school develop as an Eco School.
Here is the Eco Council for 2017-18:
Eco Code competition winners
Last term the Eco Council ran a competition to create a new Eco Code for the school. The children were encouraged to come up with ideas about protecting our environment like, recycling, not wasting resources, saving energy and water, growing our own food, etc. The Eco Council judged the competition and the winners each received a live miniature Christmas tree. Thanks to everyone who entered. We will unveil the new Holly Park Eco Code later this term.

Switch Off Fortnight
This week is the launch of National ‘Switch Off Fortnight.’ Mr French and the Eco Council gave a very informative talk in assembly to all the children about why it is important to switch off.
At Holly Park we are going to try our best to remember to switch off lights when we are not in rooms, switch off computers and projectors when we are not using them. The children will monitor this and remind us all. The Eco Council children have made posters to go around the school to remind us all to do it. Maybe you could have a go at home too!
