The Eco Programme follows 9 topics:
Litter, Energy, Health, Transport, Waste Minimisation, Biodiversity, School Grounds, Water and the recently added Sustaining Our World.
To find out more about each of these log onto www.ecoschoolsscotland.org click on ‘how to take part’ on the left hand side of the page, select ‘The Nine Topics’, then choose which topic you wish to read about by clicking on the picture of that topic.
The Eco Committee meets regularly throughout the term and decide what topics to focus on.
The committee then decides on how to meet the requirements of each topic.
Our school can then achieve awards for the work the do.
The first award is BRONZE, then SILVER and finally the GREEN FLAG award.
Details of what has been discussed at each meeting will be posted on the Eco board so don’t forget to keep checking the board when you are in school.
