MOST INSPIRATIONAL CLASS AWARD!
In March of this year the Eco and School council visited the Southport Eco Centre to find out about global warming and sustainable energy use. We had a wonderful day with everyone enjoying the learning. To find out more, see our report lower down on this web page.
Following the trip in March, school received a wonderful Email from the Eco Centre in April to inform us that the group of children who spent the day there had been chosen as the MOST INSPIRATIONAL class of the WHOLE YEAR to visit the centre due to their hard working attitude and enthusiasm.
We were very proud, but not terribly surprised as we know how wonderful our children were.
We were asked to keep the award a secret from the children. They had been asked to perform the assembly they had put together to share their day with the whole school, so we used this as the reason for going to the Award Ceremony at The Ramada Hotel in Southport.
On Wednesday 6th July the children performed their assembly to an audience of several hundred people with only a morning to practice it. They did very well and were presented with a lovely glass shield and certificate by last year’s Eco Champion of the year. On leaving the hotel each child was given an ‘Eco goody bag’ to take home with them.
The Eco Council Planted wildflower seeds around the outside of the wooden fence near our school orchard.
We have done this to give food to the threatened bee population as part of the national Bee Cause campaign, we were given the seeds by ‘Friends of the Earth’.
We also planted some pea seeds in one of our indoor courtyards. We hope to be eating fresh peas later in the summer! We were given the seeds by the WWF as part of their ‘Plant2Plate’ campaign.
