We set up an eco-committee, elected our eco warriors, carried out an enviromental review, created an action and are now the proud owners of an Eco-Schools BRONZE award!!!!!
Our Eco-warriors have been busy thinking about what they want to achieve and what message they want St James school to send out. They designed an eco-code which is on display on the eco-board in school. They think we all need to SAVE OUR WORLD!
Save water and energy
Always encourage birds and wildlife to visit our school
Voice your opinions – don’t keep quiet and speak up
Eco-warriors help save the environment
Our school should be litter free
Use your brain and don’t drop litter
Reduce, reuse, and recycle
Water our plants, trees and flowers
Our community needs us
Remember to turn off lights
Look after our school environment, community and planet
Don’t drive if you can walk or cycle
What is Eco-Schools?
Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging 19.5 million children across 67 countries, making it the largest educational programme on the planet.
For over 25 years Eco-Schools has been empowering children to drive change and improve their environmental awareness through the simple Seven-Step framework in order to achieve the international Eco-Schools Green Flag award.
Eco-Schools develops pupils’ skills, raises environmental awareness, improves the school environment and creates financial savings for schools as well as a whole host of other benefits.
At St James our Eco warriors make up our eco-committee. There are two elected eco-warriors from each class from year 1 upwards.
This year we have been working on lots of projects in order to apply for our Bronze award which is the first step in achieving our Green flag award!
