PORT ELLEN PRIMARY ECO DAY
We had an Eco Day on Wednesday 14th Febuary 2007.We all had to take a clean plastic milk bottle into school to design and make the bottle into something we could reuse. At the end of the day we showed them to the whole school to see what they thought of them. Primary 1/2 sang us a song called ‘Reduce, Reuse Recycle’, it was very good. They also drew posters to tell the story of King Wastealot and gave the wormery a spring clean.
Primary 3/4 made up posters for our Walk on Wednesday project. We are now a WOW school and everyone tries to walk or cycle to school on a Wednesday.
Primary 5/6 did another ‘Fruit and Veg Mania’ tuckshop, with lots of healthy and tasty snacks on offer for us.
P6/7 designed an Eco Board Game which was absolutely brilliant!
We all carried out an environmental review of the whole school using survey sheets. Each class chose one of the surveys to do. We had to choose from water, waste, transport, health and well being, school grounds, energy, litter and bio diversity. The Brilliant Beginnings Committee use this information to tell us what we need to work on to make our school better over the next year.
The school had to make eco banners for its eco code. Everybody worked hard to finish off the banners and Mrs Onions sewed them.
We had a good day and got lots done. P1/2 did a survey to find out if everyone enjoyed the day. Almost everyone did, so we plan to have an Eco Day every year!
