Introducing our Eco Council 2023 ~ 2024...
As part of God's World, we take looking after the environment seriously at English Martyrs'.
Our Eco Council is led by Mrs Ridings & Miss Ironfield together with children from Reception to Year 6.
So far, they have established recycling of paper at school, securing 4 paper recycle bins from Preston City Council; they have campaigned across school for less use of one-use materials such as plastic bottles; designed posters to remind people to switch lights off when they are not needed and are working towards the Silver Eco Schools Award.
As part of our whole school improvement, we have planted trees to encourage wildlife into an urban area and have developed our outdoor learning.
We have followed Pope Francis' words and works for Laudato Si' ~ His letter addressed to every person on the planet, asking us all to protect our common home...The Earth.
'The earth is God's gift to us,
full of beauty and wonder.
And it belongs to everyone.'
