Eco School Programme

At Bushes Primary we are taking part in the Eco Schools programme. This is an international programme which is designed to encourage whole-school action for the environment. Schools worldwide are getting involved, making a commitment to continuously improve their environmental performance.

We already encourage our pupils to take an interest in their environment so that they may develop informed attitudes about environmental issues. This programme helps to promote environmental awareness and involves the whole school including pupils, staff, parents and the wider community.

The Eco Schools programme has ten environmental topics. These are:

  • Litter
  • Waste Minimisation
  • Energy
  • Water
  • Transport
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • School Grounds
  • Biodiversity
  • Sustaining our World
  •  Food and the Environment

Many pupils apply to be part of our Eco Committee. Pupils must complete an application form and the committee decides who is successful. One pupil from each class, P 4 – 7 serve on the committee. Together we monitor our progress and create new action plans each year based on our findings.
The process of being an Eco School is challenging, thought-provoking and exciting!

We have received the Bronze Award and Silver Award for all our hard work. During this session we will try to gain the Green Flag.

Bushes Eco Song

Chorus
We need to save our planet
Be a team
We need to save our planet
Be a team
We need to save our planet
Be a team
We’re making Bushes an Eco school
 
We’re going to keep our playground neat and trim
We’re going to put our litter in the bin
We’re recycling rubbish that’s what we do
We’re making Bushes an Eco school
 
Chorus
 
We’re going to find out more about our world
Are people like us? – that’s what we’ve heard
We’re planting flowers and trees and vegetables too
We’re making Bushes an Eco school
 
 Chorus
 
We’re going to save clean water by turning off taps
We’re going to try and eat only healthy snacks
We’re going to exercise and walk to school
We’re making Bushes an Eco school
 
Chorus
