Since September 2016, one child from each class (Years 2-6) makes up the team of 15 Eco-Rangers who meet with Mrs Loly, once a month, to carry out environmental reviews; decide on what areas we need to become more environmentally friendly and help to implement changes.
Summary of Our Environmental Review
Before Christmas, we carried out an environmental review at Oldway School, these are our findings:
Litter / Bins:
We found very little litter around our school so we are happy that people are using the bins well.
We have recycling bins in or outside every class in the school, but sometimes paper is being thrown in the waste bins instead of the recycling bins. Please remember to recycle paper.
We checked with the office and they told us that the school buys things made from recycled materials.
This is a big area we need to improve on. Lights and whiteboards are being left on in empty classrooms.
Dripping taps and leaks are usually fixed quickly, so we do not waste water.
School Grounds and Biodiversity:
We have garden and outdoor learning areas.
Many families walk to school or at least walk part of the way. More people who live near to school could consider walking to school rather than coming by car.
Our school promotes a healthy lifestyle including eating healthy food, drinking water and regular exercise.
We think some people at our school think about the environment and how we affect it, but more people need to care for the environment and think about how our actions affect other people.
We would like the help of everyone who is a part of Oldway School to care for the environment as well as we can.
