At Cranborne we place a great emphasis on caring for our environment and take our roles as global citizens seriously. We understand the role that our school can play in raising awareness of environmental issues and the positive impact that this can have on individuals, our school and the wider community.
Our Eco-council meets regularly to discuss how we can make Cranborne a more environmentally friendly place. Children at Cranborne are encouraged to develop their own ways to make a positive change. For example, working closely alongside our site manager, children in year 5 have are using their lunchtimes to improve our school environment by becoming litter pickers, and spoken about the impact of this during whole school assemblies in order to educate the wider community. Our recycling monitors are fantastic role models for the school and are working on ways to ensure that each class reduces their waste as much as they possibly can.
Here are Eco-Council's Top Tips for improving our school environment
Top tips to improve the environment at our school!
1. REUSE, REDUCE, RECYCLE…. Repeat.
2. Draw on scrap paper, instead of plain paper.
3. Use both sides of plain paper, don’t waste it!
4. Pick up litter if you see it.
5. Bring a reusable water bottle to school.
6. Bring in plastic pots for packed lunches.
7. Teachers, turn off your lights at the end of the day!
8. Try not to leave the tap on because it wastes water.
9. Up-cycle! Instead of throwing away old stuff, why not see if you can make it into something new!
10. Volunteer to help with the Big Dig (more details coming soon).
