Eco-Council

 
 

St Conor's Primary School's Eco team was created in 2009-2010 and has been operating in our school for 10 years. Together they tackle many of the environmental concerns held by staff, parents and children of the school and to make the most of our fabulous school grounds.

 

Our Aim

 We want to:

  • Grow flowers
  • Save energy and reduce waste in the classroom 
  • Encourage pupils to make healthy food choices
  • Promote the importance of physical activity
  • Attract wildlife to the school grounds
  • Recycle paper and paper products
  • Ensure the school grounds are kept litter free

We have made a great start towards achieving these goals and have attained the Bronze Eco-school Award in June 2010, the Silver Award in 2010-2011 and the ultimate goal, the Eco-Schools green Flag Award in June 2011!

We also achieved  our 3rd Green Flag in May 2019

 

You can also find information on our Eco-schools notice board and in our school magazine!

 

The team meets on a regular basis to work on these projects and also to develop ideas to raise funds and whole school awareness of the issues.  We have undertaken a thorough environmental review, looking in detail how the school responds to issues such as litter, recycling, water and energy conservation, transport, healthy living and bio-diversity.  We as a team realise the importance of how well our school curriculum considers the issues both locally and with a global perspective.  We used the outcomes of this review to devise our action plan.
