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.
We’re hoping to achieve a Silver Award and Bronze Award from 'Eco-Schools': This will then allow us to achieve the Green Flag Award. This will help us to embed these principles at the of Conway Primary School.
What are Eco Schools?
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 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.
