Our Eco council took part in a Green Ambassador event on Thursday with members of the Elliot Foundation and many other schools in The Elliot Foundation Academy Trust. This event was held to celebrate Earth Day. We heard what schools were doing to support a more sustainable climate in their schools and we were able to share what our Eco Pledge was for this academic year.
There was a lot to think about and discuss at our next meeting and we look forward to sharing regular updates with you soon.
The Eco council have planted a tree near the pond area in memory of HM Queen Elizabeth II and as part of The Queen's Green Canopy. This has been arranged by our Community Councillor Mrs Betts, from Fen Group, who came to place a plaque next to the tree.
Our new Eco Council members met today for the first time this academic year. They had some amazing ideas and there are some great projects in the pipeline (watch this space!). Over the next 2 weeks the children at Cavalry will be concentrating their efforts on improving these three things:
Our top 3 actions from the first Eco Council meeting
- Turn off lights, boards and other electrical equipment when it is not in use
- Use less paper and make sure you use both sides of the paper
- Only put recycling objects in the brown bin (no fruit, no pencil sharpenings or other items that can’t be recycled)
We are pretty certain that these are things that could help our families too. Why not try this challenge at home and do your bit to save the environment (and a few pennies too!).
