The meeting today followed an assembly on World Earth Day that highlighted environmental issues. Classes were asked to think of ways Forest Fields children and staff could have a positive impact on both our school and local environment. The feedback was really positive and the children had obviously given it a great deal of thought.
Discussions focused on: Recycling, saving energy, composting, focusing on litter, walking/cycling to school instead of coming in a car and raising the profile across school through posters and assemblies.
Jim, our Site manager, has registered the school to become and ECO School and following this the children have decided to form a committee to further develop our school site, ensuring that we are as ECO friendly as possible - Watch this space to find out how this progresses!
Our Mini bus campaign is still driving forward and we should have our totaliser on display in the school office next week. Members of the school council are adding the finishing touches this coming Thursday. Many thanks for your contributions to various fund raising activities that have already taken place.
