The school this year will be continuing on the Eco-School journey to become more environmentally friendly. In our school we have wonderful children who care for their environment in their classrooms as well as around them but we are working on making children more aware by becoming active citizens.
Alhamdulillah, we have as a school received our Green Flag and look forward to working on our actions this year. We have a fantastic Eco-Committee team with one member from each class from Year 1 through to Year 6. The children are very eager and excited to be part of the committee.
We will be keeping you informed and letting you know how we are getting on!
Top tips from the Eco-Committee on how parents can help.
1. Encourage children to use a reusable water bottle so that there is less plastic pollution and harm caused to our marine wildlife.
2. Ditch the cling wrap- cling film cannot be recycled instead use foil which is recyclable. You need to make sure you put it in the recycling bin after use!
3.Talk and encourage your children about keeping their surroundings clean and the importance of putting rubbish in the bin. Whether this is at home, school, the park etc.
We are guardians, of the planet and have a duty and responsibility for its care. A number of the Hadiths refer to the Prophet Muhammad's (PBUH) concern about the environment and treatment of animals, and he encourages those around him to value the Earth and all of nature.
