Who Are We?
We are the Eco Committee and we want to be at the forefront of spreading awareness of environmental issues. We want to lead change both in our school and our local area. We meet every Wednesday and discuss global issues, as well as ways we can make an impact in our school by making small but significant changes.
Every year we start by completing an Eco Review with a focus on different topics, such as the environment, waste, litter, healthy living and global awareness. We share what we have found and then vote on a plan of action. This year we chose recycling, waste, environment (school grounds) and to spread awareness of the ‘plastic impact’! Each term we work in teams and follow our plan of action to make a change.
How We Make A Difference...
We will work with West Malling and Kings Hill Eco Hub to team up and work on issues related to our local area. Most recently we added leaves to our local Pledge Tree and shared our promises with our local community. We will work alongside our school council to organise a walk to school week and litter picks. We will also take part in larger campaigns such as bird watch and recycling week. We will promote the Eco code; reduce, reuse, recycle, sharing our knowledge with our peers through leading assemblies, writing newsletters and holding school competitions.
Friday 19 November 2021 Eco Committee and Eco Hub The Eco Committee have been looking at how our little actions can add up to big impacts! We have written leaf pledges for the Kings Hill and West Malling Eco Hub Pledge tree. We visited West Malling Library and hung our promises on the tree and chatted to Laura Taylor, who runs the local Eco Hub. Our Year 6 pupils discussed ways we can improve awareness in our school, about leading a greener lifestyle and begin to take steps to reduce our impacts on the environment. Laura gave us lots of ideas and we are very excited to start writing up our action plan for the year!
Friday 24 September 2021 Recycling Week This week children have learnt about recycling for 'Recycling Week.' This year the theme is 'Step it Up,' highlighting that although we may already recycle at home, work and school, it is time to make improvements.
