We have just been awarded our Green Flag for our dedication to Eco Projects and for our commitment to raising environmental awareness within our school community. Well done everyone!
Langham Village School’s Eco-Council is a group of dedicated students, from Y2- Y6, who are passionate about making our school and the world a more sustainable and environmentally friendly place. We believe that small actions can make a big difference, and together, we work towards creating a greener future.
At the start of each academic year Eco-Council conduct an environmental review of the school. From this an action plan is made for the whole school to engage with. The action plan provides a scaffolding for the Eco-Council to base their work around.
For this academic year (2022/23) Eco- council’s action plan involves a close focus on:
1. Litter: We promote recycling and proper waste disposal by educating our peers on the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling.
2. Biodiversity: We develop and maintain the school grounds to promote biodiversity and teach students about the importance of plants and nature.
3. Energy: We encourage energy-saving habits by reminding everyone to turn off lights and electronic devices when not in use.
The Eco-Council are hoping to receive their first green flag in July 2023. We are also working towards Plastic Free Schools status.
Members of the Eco-Council take on exciting projects and activities. Already this year, children at Langham Village School have participated in litter picks, both on site, at our local beach and in Langham. The children have planted over 100 new trees on site, fund raised for new wildlife resources and promoted plastic free lunchboxes. Alongside these actions, the school curriculum includes environmental education across many subjects.
Join us in our mission to make a difference! If you have any ideas or suggestions, feel free to reach out to any member of the Eco-Council.We believe that by working together, we can create a more sustainable future for ourselves and future generations.
Together, we can be the change-makers our world needs.
