Welcome to Grange Primary School's Eco Warrior Webpage. This page will tell you about our brand new Eco Warriors and some of work we are doing. We have just recently appointed our first ever Eco Warriors who are now working hard to encourage the rest of the school in order to get our Bronze Award. Their aim is to help our school become more eco-friendly and gain Eco School awards in the process.
Why do we have Eco Warriors?
Being an Eco Warrior is an ideal opportunity for our pupils to get more involved in the way our school is run and help us to be more environmentally friendly. It provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made. Eco Warriors take on the responsibility of expressing their own views, but also the views of their peers as well as passing on information from eco meetings. As an Eco Warrior, pupils have the opportunity to develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation.
Who can be an Eco Warrior?
Any child at Grange Primary School can become an Eco Warrior. In September, each class across the school voted for their chosen Eco Warrior representatives after hearing why they wanted to represent their class. We now have 12 Eco Warriors from Year 1 right through to Year 6.
What do our Eco Warriors do?
Our Eco Warriors help to care for our school environment: they help others to follow our eco-code, monitor our energy use in class and encourage teachers and children to recycle. Our current Eco Warriors will take part in discussions and votes and feed back any relevant information to their class. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the Eco Committee. Members will meet regularly with Miss Washer to discuss their ideas.
If you have any suggestions, ideas or would like to help us GET GREENER in any way, then why not pop into school and let us know.
