At Farley, one member of each class has been appointed as an Eco Warrior. Eco Warriors find out how to keep the planet 'clean green and beautiful'. On a day to day basis, Eco Warriors have responsibilities around the school. For example:
- collect litter
- give advice to other pupils about using less paper
- encourage others to use the recycling bins
- remind teachers to turn off electrical items that are not in use
- make sure that water is not being wasted.
They meet every week to feedback to the group and discuss next steps. They are currently working towards 'Gold' for Eco Schools.
Switch off Fortnight
As part of the Eco Schools, we are taking part in the Switch off Fortnight campaign.
This year, it will run from the 20th November 2017 until 03rd December 2017. To start off the campaign, all staff have been asked to switch off all (or as many as possible) electrical appliances on Monday 20th November and try to limit the use of appliances for the rest of the fortnight.
The eco warriors will secretly be visiting all classrooms to monitor how well this is being carried out. The winning class will be announced in assembly and put on the Eco Schools board.
