We are the Crondall Primary School David Hoyle Foundation Eco Warriors. Each class has elected two representatives and we meet every Thursday to improve our school’s environment.
Our first goal was to clean up our village. In April, we walked to the cricket pitch and picked up lots of litter, such as plastic cups, glass bottles, bottle lids, and lots of cardboard and paper. We took the littler back to school and recycled what we could. Our aim is to continue with village litter picks every month. As well as this, we also frequently litter pick around the school grounds at break and lunch time to provide a safer and healthier environment for all.
Another improvement we have made is to reduce the amount of plastic we use at school. For example, our kitchen staff have agreed to use china bowls instead of plastic bowls for puddings. This helps reduce the amount of plastic we use on a daily basis. We have also started to make our own yogurts rather than importing plastic yogurt tubs.
Building on the progress that we have made so far, our next initiative is to set up recycling boxes in each class so that we can recycle felt-tip pens and whiteboard pens. A parent from our school community has kindly offered to recycle these locally.
