  • ♻️ Waste

🌍 Eco Council

Our Eco Councillors were selected after applying for the role by creating an application video. We meet throughout the year to discuss our Action Plans and ideas to make our school a greener, happier and more eco-friendly environment to learn. The Eco Board is updated regularly with our meeting minutes and plans. Why not take a look at it when you're walking around our school?
