All About Eco

Eco-Club

Eco-Club at Macosquin Primary school is a fun, interactive and informative club which is currently working towards achieving our Eco Schools Green Award, having previously earned our Silver Award. The club meets on a weekly basis and have been working hard to transform the school into a more eco-friendly environment.  This year we are focusing on making healthy choices at break time, improving our school grounds through the creation of a 'Sensory Garden' and becoming a more active school through our partnership with Sustrans. We identified these areas for improvement by completing an "Environmental Review" at the start of the year.  An Action Plan was then drawn up to help us make positive changes.

“The benefits of working towards an award such as the Green Award extend beyond the improvement of the environmental quality of the school. The programme gives the pupils a sense of responsibility and pride in what they have achieved. With this comes the hope that the pupils will continue this behaviour in the wider community”. 

In school we also have an Eco-Committee, whereby children and their family members meet with members of staff to discuss and decide upon "Eco" related issues within school and the local community.
