The Loyne School Eco – Committee meet every half term and have been busy developing and implementing an action plan targeting five topic areas from the Eco –School’s Green Flag Award.

Working on the Eco – Committee has developed pupils’ leadership skills as they support the rest of the school community on a meaningful journey towards creating a more sustainable school environment and ethic.

The Eco – Committee decided that a good way to raise awareness of their Eco – School’s work was to hold a whole school eco day. All classes were involved in a wide variety of activities including: making birdfeeders and conducting a bird watch survey, writing letters to supermarkets and the local council regarding plastic pollution and litter, creating recycled art to highlight the dangers of plastic to marine life, mini-beast hunts in the woodland area and undertaking a litter pick in the local community.
