The children’s choice commitee (CCC) and Eco committees have identified sustainability as an action to undertake this year, particularly raising awareness of Fairtrade.  Primary 6 embraced Fairtrade as their context and through the work they have carried out, we are now a Fair Aware school having achieved our first Fairtrade school award. P6 and the CCC have been pro-active in making changes in our school. We now have Fairtrade products available in our dinner hall, we run a very successful Fairtrade tuck shop and we have introduced Fairtrade products to our staff room.

We are now working towards our second Fairtrade award and due to the combined efforts of p6 and the CCC we are well on our way to achieving this.

Eco Update

Litter continues to be an issue in our school particularly when it is windy. Eco reps visited classes last week to remind them of the importance of keeping our playgrounds tidy. P3 are in charge of litter picking in the infants playground and are up and running with a litter rota.

We will be taking part in the “Wrigley’s Litter Less” campaign and have been discussing what initiatives we could undertake for this challenge. We are keen to source a new bin for the middle and upper playground. Watch this space for updates.

CCC meeting February

At our February meeting we discussed the Global Goals. We decided to be part of the Global Lesson and help to spread the message of the goals. To help tell everybody, the CCC are going to lead an assembly to show people what the goals are and what problems they are to fix.

Each class has taken one of the goals to make a picture to show the children at assembly what that goal is all about. There is also a comic book which we are going to share with the children.

In a couple of weeks we will post some photos of our assembly.
