Our amazing Eco Committee members have had a very busy twelve months. As well as working hard at their regular meetings after school they have visited a local packaging-free shop to learn more about how we can reduce the amount of waste we produce, as well as working with the shop to collect crisp packets and used pens in school which will be sent away to be recycled. Members also helped to organise an eco assembly in December when we welcomed some special visitors from an organisation called Seastraws. They talked to our whole school about their mission to cut down on plastic waste, and shared some beautiful photos of some of the wildlife that they have spotted on their dive expeditions. We couldn't have been prouder of three of our committee members who presented their ideas about ecology and our environment at the first ever Stockport Schools Eco Summit, held at Manchester University. Finally, our proudest achievement this year is probably renewing our Eco Schools status: we were visited by one of the assessors from the Eco Schools organisation at the end of November who, after reviewing our evidence and spending the morning talking to our members, decided that we deserved to be accredited as an official Eco School for another two years.
