The aim of the Eco Council is to help protect our planet! The Eco Council is passionate about this topic and has made many changes to help our school become more eco-friendly.
WHAT DOES THEEco council do?
Last year, the Eco Council focused on setting up a school clothing bank. This involved members of the Eco Council selling used school uniform at a discounted price. Unfortunately, due to Covid 19 the council were unable to continue to do this. The Eco-Council wanted to raise enough money to create a small garden in our school, where the pupils of St Paul’s could grow their own fruits and vegetables. We also hoped to sell these fruits and vegetables at a reduced price to give back to our community. In September, we will be looking at coming up with ideas on how to raise money for our school garden.
Other changes in September...
In September, the school will be involved in picking litter in the most affected areas of Nuneaton. The Eco Council will then arrange a day out for their class to go litter picking to help their community. Also, in September the Eco Council will be writing a letter to supermarkets asking for support to become the best Eco Council they can be. We aspire to become a flagship Eco Council that supports other schools and helps them to improve their efforts at recycling.
The Eco Council will be keeping the school, community and teachers up to date with their improvements by holding regular assemblies and posting photographs and messages on the school website. The Eco Council hopes to inspire more people to recycle and reuse.
