The first meeting of the new Eco Committee took place on Wednesday 2nd May. Red Rose Primary School will be striving to reach Eco School status. Although the whole school will participate in environmental projects, the committee will be lead the way with our ‘Eco Warriors’ – representatives from each class.
The committee will be hands on, experiencing real world learning and encouraging whole school involvement – as well as engaging the wider community.
The first meeting welcomed a representative from Oases:North East. She engaged our Eco Warriors in activities which focused on energy – how we make energy; why we make energy; why it’s important to save energy and how we can save energy.
Over the coming months, the committee have been set their 1st challenge. The challenge is to turn electrical appliances off when not in use, as well as encouraging others to do the same. You can join in this challenge – Together we can make a difference.
