The aim of the Eco Council is to help the school develop as an Eco School.
Here is this year’s Eco Council:
The Eco Council has continued working on the allotment this week and they have planted onions and garlic. This week in assembly, Mr French talked to the whole school about the annual event, “Switch Off Fortnight” which aims to teach children about the importance of saving energy by switching off anything electrical when it is not being used. The Eco Council will ensure that this is happening in school by going around the school and making sure that lights, monitors, whiteboards etc are switched off. The Eco Council has also set homework about climate change for all children in KS1 and KS2. The children need to write a poem, make a poster or write a motivational speech. The winners will get a copy of Greta Thunberg’s book.
We had fun planting onions and garlic in the allotment.
Thank you to last year’s council:
Eco Council trip
The Eco Council had a trip to the Barnet Environment Centre and looked at mini beasts, did a nature walk and hugged a tree!
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!
