Eco-Council 2019-2020

 

Minutes of Eco-Council meeting 17 October 2019

  •  
  •  

We elected two new Eco-Councillors for this academic year.

We reviewed our Action Plan

 

 

 

 

Actions this term:

  • Build bug apartments in The Nook
  • Talk to Mr MacMeikan about building a bird hide in Crescent Corner
  • AN to send letter about Fairtrade to our new chef

 

AOB [Any other business]

We consulted the Thermal Imaging Report commissioned by the school that took place in September 2019 by some our Eco-Councillors.

 

[Although the heating performance of the school is 60% less than other typical schools, this school still uses too much electricity than other typical schools.]

 

Urgent Action Required

 

  • Eco-Councillors and other pupils and staff to ensure that radiators are not blocked by furniture in spaces.
  • Eco-Councillors and other pupils and staff to ensure that lights are dimmed or turned off when not being used.
  • Eco-Councillors and other pupils and staff to ensure all other electrical equipment is switched off when not being used.

Summer Term 2019

Spring Term 2019

 

During the Spring Term the Eco-Council carried out an Environmental Review.

We looked at 10 different aspects with reference to the school and the school grounds:

Biodiversity

Energy

Global Citizenship

Healthy Living

Litter

Marine

School Grounds

Water

Waste

Transport

The Outcomes of the Environmental Review helped us to identify the 5 environmental targets for our Eco Action Plan.

Autumn Term 2018

 

The Eco-Council's aim for 2018-2019 is to reduce our use of electricity.

We are a pro-active Eco-Council and came prepared to share our ideas on how to reduce the school's electricity use. The 'Turn it off!' Campaign will be presented in a whole school assembly on 27 November 2018.

Teachers and pupils watch out! We Eco-warriors are on a mission!
