Our Eco-Warrior team first started at Sharow CE School in 2019.
Since then the team have been pro-active in their goal of making the school a greener place.
The team led the school to the Gold Green Tree Award in 2020. Encouraging children to visit woodlands, celebrate trees in their locality and even planting two trees on the school field.
The Eco-Warriors have also created paper recycling bins for each class which are now collected and recycled with NYCC.
This year the Eco-Warriors set themsleves the challenge to achieve the Eco-Schools Green Flag Award. Last week we heard that our application was successful. Below is some of the feedback from the Eco-Schools team.
"It's wonderful that you have appointed such a representative Eco-Committee, this shows your school’s excellent commitment to both the programme and the eco-cause. We love your democratic and fair approach to appointing Eco-Committee members. It’s great to see that other pupils played a part in the process. It was also wonderful to see that they were supported by a member of staff and that a key member of the SLT was kept informed."
"Your Action Plan shows that your Eco-Committee have carefully considered how they can involve their entire school in their planned Eco-Schools’ activities to achieve maximum impacts and raise awareness amongst their school community. We love the range of activities that you and your Eco-Committee planned for delivery. The fact that they cover both indoor (waste monitors and taking part in the Great Big School Clean) and outdoor (regular litter-picks and growing your own fruit and vegetable snacks) activities is excellent."
"We love that your pupils have taken their great work beyond the school gates and into their local community with some fabulous community litter-picks for the Great Big School Clean – excellent efforts!"
