“It’s surely our responsibility to do everything within our power to create a planet that provides a home not just for us, but for all life on Earth.”
Words by David Attenborough Naturalist and wildlife filmmaker.
We have some great news to share. Last year, the Eco Council achieved an Eco Green Flag award! The Green Flag is awarded to schools in recognition of all the hard work that the Eco Council and the school community put into making a difference to our school environment. A great achievement and a massive well done to all of our community for your dedication to this cause.
Our plans for 2022-23:
The Eco Council are currently embarking on new challenges to support St Bernadette’s and our local environment to become more Eco Friendly, in order to appreciate and respect this wonderful world which God has blessed us to live in.
Recently, we have completed an environmental checklist on our school which recognises and celebrates the things we are doing well and highlights any areas which we can aim to improve.
We have identified three main areas which we feel that we can make the most difference in raising our Eco standards and to feel even more proud of our school. The three main areas are: transport, water and global citizenship. The Eco Council have lots of ideas which we will be working on throughout the year to support these areas.
We invite you to also take an active part in supporting our Eco Team in their mission to create a happy and healthy school and local environment which will result in respecting the beautiful world which God has given us.
