At Woodlands, we take Eco issues very seriously and we are very lucky to have Eco Councillors within our school, who meet regularly to discuss relevant and important ecological issues. We are always thinking of ways that we can help minimize the impact on our environment on a local and global scale.
We participate in the Eco Schools programme which provides ideal means for fostering environmental awareness in the entire school in a way that links to many curriculum subjects. The primary aim of the Eco-Schools programme is to educate and empower young people to make positive decisions and become change makers for an environmentally sustainable world.
We enjoy working on the ten Eco Schools topics; Marine, Water, Biodiversity, Energy, Global Citizenship, Waste, Healthy Living, Transport, School Grounds and Litter.
Attached below,is a list of activities based on our ten Eco topics, that you can do at home with your grown ups.
