Eco Warrior representatives meet every half term to discuss initiatives for reducing our carbon footprint and improving our understanding of global warming. They have engaged with various projects and their work links closely with our Darwin science curriculum visits.

Eco Warriors at St Oswald's School.

Here at St Oswald's school, we are passionate about all things eco! We have a dedicated team of pupils who help support the green ethos across the school. We are also very fortunate to have a team of fantastic parent volunteers who support us greatly! Below are some of the projects which eco-club have been working on recently:

Creating new raised beds

We decided that we wanted to grow more fruit and veg and have the opportunity to sell them at our school. Here is our work in progress! 

This year we have grown; sprouts, sweetcorn, runner beans, kohlrabi, carrots and lettuce!

Save the bees!

In FoundationPhase we looked at bees and how helpful they are for our planet. We even had a beekeeper in to talk to us! We were so inspired that we decided to create our own bee-friendly meadow in our school grounds.

"Classroom clean up!"

We are encouraging each class to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible. We currently recycle plastic bottles, food and paper waste in our classrooms. 

Our next aim is to recycle batteries and plastic pens/ felts. 

Protect our oceans!

As an eco-club and whole- school we looked at the impact our waste has on the seas and oceans. We made a pledge to Surfers against sewage to reduce our plastic waste in school and to recycle it whenever possible.

We fully support Fairtrade and what it does to help support people. We are a Fair aware school and eco-club have encouraged children in school to buy and use Fairtrade products where they can. 

We are a Fairtrade School!

Views from our Eco Warriors

I think the most effective action our eco club has done is the whole school litter picks because it helps our environment and everyone can get involved. It’s fun and everyone can do their bit to help the animals, Wildlife and our beautiful world that we live in!

Helping in a school we use our scrap paper as much as possible rather than using a new sheet we tried to make the most out of everything we have. we plant vegetables, fruits, trees and flowers.

I joined the eco club because I really like helping the environment and just altogether being outside. Best thing I like about being in the eco club that I can make the school a better place by planting trees, planting Flowers and making sure the school is as sustainable as it can be.

Recycle your old Christmas cards!

It's that time of the year where lots of cards end up in landfills. Why not use them for arts & crafts or recycle them, where you can!

You could even use them to create your own cards for next year!

RSPB Bird watch- January

Go for a lovely, fresh walk and take a look at the birds.

See which ones you can spot and make a list of them and send it to RSPB. 

Use your voice!

If there is something you feel passionate about, let the Eco-club know and we can see if we can help you!
