Eco Council News
The Eco Council’s mission is to ensure that our school is an environmentally friendly place to learn.
Scientia Eco Council (also known as The Eco Warriors!) is led by 16 children, who have responsibility for identifying environmental issues in and around the school grounds and for creating action plans to tackle these issues.
This year Scientia Academy are working towards achieving the Eco Schools Bronze Award. This will take a lot of hard work and commitment from children across the school, but eco council are confident that we can do it!
Members of Eco Council are elected through a democratic process. Every class from years 1 – 4 has elected two representatives. In the autumn term, children who would like to be considered for the role have the opportunity to prepare a speech explaining what they would bring to the role. Children in each class are then able to vote for their Eco Council members.
The Eco Council meet at least once every half term. However, meetings are often more frequent, especially when members are planning big events.
Our first project – to collect and recycle celebration cards for the Woodlands Trust has led to us collecting over 6,800 cards. We are very proud of this achievement and can’t wait to start on our next project …
