ECO

Orchard Primary Eco Committee

At Orchard Primary School, we have an established Eco Committee of children from P2-7.  We completed an action plan as part of our application for an Eco award and have been completing tasks in our action plan to try and make Orchard a litter-free school that prioritises caring for the environment. The group will then take forward these targets and develop experiences in and across the school.

In session 2017-2018, we have completed the following tasks:

  • Made bird feeders
  • Researched how to write a policy and then wrote Orchard primary’s Litter Policy. We are now in consultation with all stakeholders about the contents of our policy
  • Looked at ways to save energy
  • Wrote our Eco Code
  • Sent out a homework task to help our families learn the Eco Code
  • Promoted Earth Hour
  • Created charts and graphs so we can monitor the animals and insects that use our playground
  • Made timetables for energy and litter monitors and wrote their job roles
  • Litter picks
  • We are currently working on a project to raise awareness of marine litter
