I’ve just received this letter about our wonderful Eco Council!
I really enjoyed the assembly this morning and just wanted to say well done to all members of the Eco-Council. They were all keen to be involved and some even asked to speak themselves – great to see so much confidence. I hope they got a lot out of it and hope the rest of the school can be inspired to join the Eco-Council next time around.
It’s the first time I’ve had that much involvement from pupils and something I’ll look to do with other schools now, as think it worked really well.
Perhaps you can forward this email to Mr Billing so he knows how impressed with the pupils I was (and you for your idea to get them involved!)

Eco Council were in action again today! We had a visitor in school who led an assembly on recycling along with the help of our wonderful Eco Council.
We discovered how to recycle lots of different types of household waste.
We were also fascinated to see a clock made from recycled computer parts, a pencil case made from recycled car tyres and a t shirt that was made from glass bottles!
School Council reps have been busy asking their classes to vote on 3 charities this week. The RSPCA came out on top so we will be fundraising for this great cause later in the year.
They’ve also been busy gathering ideas for Children In Need that’s coming up next month – some interesting ideas so watch this space!
They also asked their classes for ideas to name Mrs Goodman’s new room off the PE hall. Which one will be picked?
So it’s been a busy half term but they’ve done themselves proud.
See you after the holidays!
Eco Council have had a very busy day! This afternoon we had a visit from a recycling expert. They will help her run an assembly on recycling for the rest of the school next week!
Some of our Eco Council were lucky enough to visit Howe Dell Eco school today. They were amazed by the things we saw…! They were also brilliantly behaved!
Today we finalised our school council code. These were all the children’s own ideas 🙂
This week, they have asked their classes about ideas for charity fundraising. They had loads of ideas and we finally decided on 3 charities that classes will now vote on – Great Ormond Street Hospital, Cancer research and RSPCA. Final decision to be revealed next week.
I’ve also set them a challenge to ask their class for ideas on what to call Mrs Goodman’s new room which is used for small group work. Looking forward to hearing their ideas.
We love our home made Eco Council badges!
We’re also looking forward to visiting Howe Dell School next week to meet their Eco Committee!
