Gaskell Primary School has a very active Eco-team who endeavour to reduce, reuse and recycle daily.
Meetings are held every half-term and the committee discusses awareness campaigns such as ‘Switch-off Fortnight’, ‘Waste Week’, Fairtrade Awareness as well as environmental issues.
Eco-competitions for the whole school are organised to raise awareness of environment issues such as the amount of plastic in our oceans. This year, the Eco-team are going to be busy improving part of the woodland area at the back of the school field . Watch this space for further details! If you think you can help in any way, please let us know in school.
The Eco-warriors have daily tasks of switching off lights and computers, managing the composting and recycling paper, plastic and card. Our new Eco-Team is very enthusiastic and is looking forward to making a real difference in school!
