Eco Committee

Welcome to Craigentinny Primary Eco Committee Page

 

Craigentinny Primary proudly displays it’s Green Eco Flag

 

This year the Eco Committee members are:

Murrin, Isla, Harry, Robyn, Jim, Jivanshu, Hannah, Miss Kinnaird and our group of parents who support us with all the Eco work within the school and the school grounds.

 

Within the committee we work together as a whole committee on projects, in small teams e.g, the energy and litter teams, the website and display teams, the JRSOS and we also work in individual roles.

 

Pupil Voice and Committee Meetings

As with all of our pupil committees at Craigentinny, the Eco Committee encourages pupils, staff, parents and the wider community to voice their views, opinions and ideas. The committee values the views and opinions of the whole school community and encourages pupil voice.

 

The committee holds regular meetings, assemblies, sends out questionairres and carries out surveys. We feedback to everyone about the work we are carrying out. The committee meetings are lead by the pupils themselves and draw on the views of the whole school community.

We need to save our planet, be a team

We need to save our planet, be a team

We need to save our planet, be a team

We’re making Craigie an Eco School

 

We pick up litter in our school

Because dropping litter is not cool

We don’t overflow toilets, that’s the rule

We’re making Craigie an Eco School

 

We’re going to find out more about our world

Are people like us? – that’s what we’ve heard

We recycle our rubbish, that’s what we do

We’re making Craigie an Eco School

 

We’re going to save clean water, turn off taps

We’re going to try to eat only healthy snacks

We’re going to walk or cycle or scoot to school,

We’re making Craigie an Eco School
