We have achieved the Bronze Award!
What are Eco Schools?
We take looking after the environment and the community very seriously at Conway Primary School. This year we are finding out how we can take better care of the world we live in.
The Eco-Schools' Award is an internationally recognised programme that guides schools on their journey to becoming more sustainable. By following the programme our school will learn how to reduce its environmental footprint and educate the future generations in how to better respect the planet.
There are 9 key areas of Eco-schools:
Our Eco team is made up from children from Years 1 - 6. The Team meet regularly to think about and discuss ways to care for the environment and the world around us. The children are enthusiastic about the Eco-Schools' Award and enjoy making a difference to our environment. They can be easily identified as they will be proudly wearing their 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 some of the environmental issues we have begun to tackle with help from the 'Eco Warriors'.
Unfortunately, between 8 and 12 million tons of plastic are 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 launched an exciting project where all children in the school have been provided with new reusable water bottles! These will be kept in the classrooms, for children to easily access in order to help to stop the use of single plastic water bottles.
