Seren yr Wythnos/Achiever of the Week

ECO Club

 Eco Club have worked tirelessly this academic year, on several projects. They have proposed the Eco Quad, adjacent to the Geography and RST rooms is used as a working farm, with a chicken on site! The bottle greenhouse has been dismantled and will be recycled and used  as a storage area and hen house. Pupils have researched and ‘costed’ this whole project and have recently met with the Head Teacher and Business manager, to formulate a business plan for the project. Pupils from the club have visited Llanrhidian Primary on Gower, where they interviewed pupils with responsibility for their working farm, to glean ideas on how ours can be run.

A number of our Year 7 pupils have been involved in investigations to make the school site more sustainable. Pupils came up with their own ideas, researched, sent out and collated questionnaires and presented ideas to a governor subcommittee. Proposals for the next academic year are to work with the Canteen Manager to help the canteen become plastic free, to set up and run a Zero waste Shop based in room 5 and to start a vegetable delivery service, in partnership with a local farmer.

In addition we are working with Young Business Dragons to monitor air quality around the school site. Pupils have sited monitoring tubes and will shortly be removing these for analysis of the air quality around the site. During the next academic year a number of pupils in the Eco Club will enter reports on Eco based issues into the Young Reporters for the Environment competition. We wish them luck!

Our busy year culminated in the success of being awarded our third Green Flag by the Eco Schools organisation. We are thrilled to have received this and now look forward to working towards the Platinum Flag, Eco Schools highest award!
