We have achieve the Bronze Award!
Well done to all the staff and children who helped Conway Primary School achieve this award.
What are Eco Schools?
We take sustainability and looking after our community and environment very seriously at Conway Primary School due to the growing threat our planet faces. This year (and beyond!) we are working hard to make sure we learn how to take care of and respect our environment.
Eco-Schools is an international award program that guides schools on their sustainable journey. By following the programme our school will become a more stimulating place in which to learn, whilst reducing the environmental impact of the whole school on the community.
There are 9 key areas of Eco-schools; Energy, Water, Biodiversity, School Grounds, Healthy Living, Transport, Litter, Waste and Global Citizenship.
Our Eco team is made up from children from Year 1 - Year 6. The Eco Team meet regularly using Teams to think of ways to care for the environment and the world around us. The children are enthusiastic about Eco-Schools and enjoy making a difference to our environment. They can be easily identified as they will be wearing an Eco Team badge.
Pictures coming soon..
Pupil involvement is a key part of the Eco-Schools programme. Pupils are engaged in the whole process, including monitoring and action planning. Below you can see the action we have created with support from the Eco Warriors.
Unfortunately, between 8 and 12 million tons of plastic is dumped in the world’s seas each year. According to statistics from the United Nations, if current levels of pollution continue, there will be more plastic than fish in the seas by 2050!!
Keen not to contribute any further to the high volumes of plastic waste produced locally and globally, we will be launching an exciting project this September 2020. We will be providing every child with new reusable water bottles! They will be kept in the classrooms, for children to easily access. This will help to stop the use of single plastic waterbottles.
