The Guardian Angels’ Eco-Schools Committee was established to help our children become more effective citizens by encouraging them to take responsibility for the future of their own environment.
It is not about environmental excellence, it is about our school starting to look at how it affects the environment and how this is decided upon and can be managed.
Our committee take key roles in decision-making and participate in reducing the environmental impact of the school.
In this way, Eco-Schools extend learning beyond the classroom and develop responsible attitudes both at home and in the wider community.
Our Eco Committee is the driving force of the project. We are is made up of pupils, staff, governors and the involvement of all members of the school community.
The Eco-School Committee process offers a useful model for successful communication and decision-making.
What we do
We make improvements to the school environment. By encouraging and supporting pupils to take responsibility for the environmental management of their school, children will develop and build a sense of responsibility for their surroundings.
Eco-Schools develop a caring school community where the ideas of others are valued and action is taken in response to these ideas. The school becomes a place to make positive changes and to make a difference.
We meet to discuss ‘eco-issues’ and changes they would like to see around the school. We are a bunch of dedicated and enthusiastic individuals, who work hard to improve and develop the school for the better.
