The Eco/Garden group is made up of class reps from each year. Class reps will change throughout the year to allow many children the chance to hold position of responsibility.
Previously the committee have been able to paint and improve the look of the outdoor area, grow and eat vegetables, weed, litter pick and generally look after our outside environment. The children also designed and installed bins which were more seagull proof to help reduce litter lying around the school.
The Eco group are going to introduce ‘Free from Fridays’ where we will be encouraging children to take in a wrapper free snack for break, to reduce the amount of litter that is going in the bins. Each week the winning class with the highest % of wrapper free snacks will receive a certificate to display in their class. At the end of term a special award will go to the class with the most wins!
We are delighted to confirm that Alehousewells Eco Committee have successfully achieved Eco-Schools Green Flag Award status. We are so proud!
As part of the Wrigley Litter Less Campaign, P2 have won funding for the school to help reduce litter in our local community. They have carried out a litter pick along the beautiful River Don & at the local park. They collected an awful lot of litter! They have also planted wildflower seeds in our new planters.
During lockdown, we asked you to decorate a stone to commemorate this time and then send it in to school. The Eco group have recently chosen a spot at the front of the school for them to be placed permanently and they are a bright and colourful memory of our time at home during lockdown. Thank you to everyone who took part.
This year the Eco Group will be taking on the role of recycling in the school and will be in charge of making sure the recycle bins are emptied on a weekly basis. They have completed their environmental review and have decided to focus on three areas to earn their Green Flag award: biodiversity, litter and water
Eco committee receive cheque for £200 from Asda
Recently, the Eco committee were presented with a cheque for £200 from Asda, Dyce following their green token campaign. This is a great achievement and the children are still deciding what to spend the money on, but want to use it to make our playground and outside spaces even better. Thank you if you put your green token in the Alehousewells container when shopping at Asda, Dyce!
The Eco Committee have been fundraising furiously to raise money to buy new bins for the school which were designed by the children. They look fantastic! A huge thanks to the Garioch Partnership who donated a massive £1000 to their cause.
The Eco Committee ran a Welly Wonder Competition to recycle things that otherwise would have been thrown out. The end results were superb with all the classes making a great effort. The winners were P2, well done everyone!
