Eco - Schools

Eco-Council are very fortunate to be working with Eltham Enviros, a team of parents dedicated to making the local area a more eco-friendly place. We have created a detailed action plan for this academic year, which includes giving every pupil from Year 1 to Year 6 a reusable water bottle. This will set a fantastic precedent for reducing single-use plastic use. We are close to acquiring a composter for our food waste with the aim to significantly reduce what we send to landfills and incinerators.

Our Action plan encompasses seven key areas of responsibility: Water, Global Issues, Recycling, Littering, Energy & Transport, Recycle & Reuse and Food Waste. We want to raise awareness of each responsibility and shares ways we can all play our part. We are a solution focused group.

Our Eco-Council, which meets regularly, has representatives from Year 3 to Year 6.

We think it is important to set a good example in school to help our environment and everyone should be involved. Everyone should be involved in reducing, reusing and recycling. We are working to further improve our recycling in school particularly with classroom and packed lunch waste. If we are environmentally friendly our planet will be preserved for the future as pollution is damaging our environment.

We use energy from the solar panels that were installed on rooves of our buildings which helps to reduce our carbon footprint.
