Our Eco Warriors are: Lucas, Charlotte, Oliver, Jamie, Owain, Dylan, Ben, Jack, Jack, Saskia, Imogen, Isaac, Audrey, Daisy, Poppy, George, Shingai and Maya. They meet on the first Monday of every month after school to discuss eco issues and ideas.
The children started the year by completing an environmental review to identify where the most work is needed to ensure that West Park Academy remain eco friendly. They identified that saving energy would be their first priority as quite often they see lights being left on when they don't need to be on.
During November, the children took part in 'Switch off Fortnight' and to prepare for this they carried out an audit within school about where areas can be improved. The children held a school assembly to tell the rest of the school about this initiative and how they can save energy at school and at home.
Since committing to our Eco schools programme, West Park Academy has been awarded its Bronze award in 2006, its Silver award in 2008, its first Green Flag Award in February 2015 and more recently its 2nd Green flag in January 2017! This is part of the Eco Schools International award programme.
Keep coming back for regular updates as our team of Eco Warriors will be meeting again soon and will be updating you about their new campaign.
