Eco Schools

The Eco-Schools Programme encourages pupils to engage with environmental and sustainable development issues. The scheme was developed by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), and in Wales it is managed by Keep Wales Tidy

Our school Eco Council is led by Mr Evans. It aims to develop a love and respect for our natural environment, and an awareness of the impact that our daily activities have on the world around us. Children are elected to the council each year.

This year (2020-21) the Eco Council have taken part in the Spring bulbs for Schools project organised by the National Museum of Wales in partnership with the Edina Trust. They planted daffodil and crocus bulbs, and recorded temperature and weather data as they watched their bulbs grow.

They also organised potato planting as part of the Grow Your Own Potatoes project organised by the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board.
