Eco Council

The Eco Council meet to discuss ways of keeping St Michael's 'green' and helping the environment.


The Eco Committee for 2021-22 are:


Year 6 reps



Year 5 reps



Year 4 reps



Year 3 reps



Year 2 reps



The Eco Council are keen to implement any ideas from their peers. One of the year 6 children questioned why we laminate our award certificates.


We surveyed all the classes and as a school we have agreed:

  • Not to laminate certificates
  • Have the option to receive a badge only and not a certificate and badge
  • Have the option to return bronze, silver and gold badges at the end of the year for recycling

The Eco Council are currently working towards The Eco-Schools Green Flag Award. 

We will post further updates as we progress through the award.

James in year 3 has made this poster as a reminder to re-use or re-cycle plastic.

Please find below the PowerPoint slides from the St Michael's Approach To ... (SMAT) meeting held on Tuesday 1st February. Thank you to all those who attended.
