The overall aim of the Eco- Council is to help Woodlea develop as an Eco school and become environmentally friendly. It is a great opportunity for the children to become actively involved in the way the school is run.
The council benefits the whole school because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made.
Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the children from their class.
Our Eco-Council representatives for 2020/2021
Hi! Welcome to the greenest page on the website!
We welcome our Eco council members (1 child per class)
Emilia M, Aimee T, Bethany K, Izzy F, Jacob W, Harriett L, Noah V and Evie F.
The aim of the Eco Council is to help Woodlea Junior School to develop and become environmentally friendly.
Our Eco Warriors want to remind you to STAY GREEN.
Remember not to litter and to try and buy things which don't use single-use plastic wherever possible.
Our Eco council have been involved in the Bag 2 School organisation. They encouraged all the children at Woodlea Junior School to fill their plastic bags up with unwanted clothes and bring them into school on Thursday 21st November 2019. Bag 2 School is a company that specializes in good quality second hand clothing that can be re-used instead of clothing ending up at landfill sites, causing pollution in the air. The clothing that ends up in landfills can sit there for 200-plus years, and as it decomposes, it emits methane—a greenhouse gas more potent than carbon.
A great big THANK YOU to everyone at Woodlea Junior School for taking part with this scheme to help our area become eco-friendly.
This term at Woodlea Junior School, we are going to try our best to remember to switch off lights when we are not in rooms, switch off computers and projectors when we are not using them. The Eco Council will monitor this and remind us all. The Eco Council children have made posters to go around the school to remind us all to do it. Maybe you could have a go at home too!
