Welcome to St Patrick’s Eco Club. St Patrick’s is proud to be working towards being an eco-friendly school inside our classrooms and school. A next step is to expand this to our beautiful grounds. Our Eco Warriors meet regularly to plan activities and undertake projects to educate the children here at our school on how we can be eco-friendly and in turn save our surrounding area and our planet. Our ambition is to be recognised as a school for being eco-friendly and be awarded the Green Flag award. The Eco Schools programme covers nine areas: School Grounds, Biodiversity, Global Citizenship, Energy, Water, Waste, Litter, Transport and Healthy Living. Schools entering the programme gain a Bronze, Silver and ultimately a Green Flag award through an assessment process. The Assessor looks to see work in all 9 areas throughout the school including the integration into the curriculum.
Our school target this term is to reduce the amount of plastic we use and how we can recycle this product correct. Wish us luck!
