We are taking part in 'Switch off Fortnight' project running from the 20 November - 3 December. Eco councillors have created posters which will be displayed around the school. We are challenging each class to turn off as many electrical items as they can when not in use.
Welcome to the Oak Cottage Eco Council page!
Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools and pupils on their sustainable journey, providing a simple framework to help make sustainability an integral part of school life. Eco-Schools can help enhance the curriculum and get the whole school united behind something important.
Our mission is to help make our school sustainable and to bring about behaviour change in our pupils and those connected to them so that good habits learned in our school are followed through into homes and communities.
Every half term our eco councillors meet to discuss the ways in which we can improve our school. The children take part in litter picking, energy saving programmes and will often lead assemblies and run competitions. Our projects always involve the whole school and wider community. Last year we were extremely proud to have been awarded the ‘Green Flag Status’. Our hard work and dedication means that our school continues to recycle, reduce and reuse.
