Eco School Council 2019-20

Our school councillors are from year 2 to year 6, they are chosen through a voting selection by their own class. You can only be a School Councillor once.  As a school council we have weekly meetings with our teacher Mrs Wray,to make sure everything is up to date and to see if anything needs to be done. We signed the Pledge for Peace when we signed the Mayor came to visit. Every term we present a power point on British Values so that we are all aware of them.  At St Mary's we are a very important part of school life, as it gives all of the children a voice, and a chance for pupil's ideas to be heard.  During each term we hold a HEAT Day where we discuss and raids issues around Eco and improve our outdoor environment.

Premier League Primary Stars Plastic Pollution Challenge - Spring 2019

Premier League Primary Stars and Sky have teamed up to help children learn about simple changes everyone can make to a postive impact on the local and global environment and help prevent further ocean plastic pollution this is something our Eco-School Council feel strongly about.

The Sky Ocean Rescue campaign #PassOnPlastic aims to shine a spotlight on the issues affecting ocean health, find innovative solutions to the problem of ocean plastics, and inspire people to make small everyday changes that collectively make a huge difference.  A key goal is to reduce single-use plastics.  They are setting primary schools a challenge to help tackle ocean plastic pollution at your school or in your local community.

We want to help!  In the coming month we will be presenting an assembly about this campaign and our next HEAT Day will be based on  this topic.
