The Eco Committee has been up and running at Kilham School since April 2018. As a school we have achieved the Eco Schools Green Flag Bronze Award. Have a look at our page and learn about some of the things we have been doing.
Eco committee News
As we enter the festive season children from the eco committee have been doing some research about the number of batteries that the average household buys. Over the Christmas period most houses will buy up to 30 batteries, many of them non rechargeable. This means that over 600 million batteries are thrown in to land fill each year. The eco team would like to remind you all that as a school we do collect old batteries and send them off to a proper recycling facility. Please collect any used batteries over Christmas and send them into school.
Switch off Fortnight 2022
We are taking part in this campaign this year. The Eco Committee led a whole school assembly to promote the compaign. We are holding a design a t-shirt competition within school. Children have been challenged to design a t-shirt which encourages people to switch off and save energy. Year group winners and runners up with be chosen by the Eco Committee members and these children will receive eco-friendly prizes. We may even make their t-shirts! Watch this space.
The Eco Committee led an assembly to inform the school that as part of the Action Plan we needed to develop an Eco Code for our school. A competition was organised by the Committee.
