Welcome to our Eco-School page!
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 from 'Eco-Schools': an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey. This will help us to embed these principles at the HEART of Conway Primary School.
Keep an eye on this page; it will be updated regularly to keep you informed on our action plan, ways you can get involved and brilliant books/articles to read!
We all have an important role to play in looking after the environment so if you have any questions or suggestions, speak to one of the Eco-Warriors who can put your ideas forward:

1. Action Plan
2. Ways to help...
Re-usable Water Bottles!
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!!
Bring in a re-usable water bottle to drink from during the day. You can keep these in school and re-fill them daily with fresh water. This will help cut down waste from single-use plastic as well as saving money. These bottles can be bought cheaply from discount stores.
Be a part of 'The Big Battery Hunt'!
Fill up a battery box and put them in the collection box in school so they can be recycled. Who knows what your battery might become: an aluminium can, a component in a remote control or even part of a skyscraper?!
