Eco Council

The Eco Council's mission is to ensure that our school is an environmentally friendly place to learn. The Eco Council is led by children, who have responsibility for identifying environmental issues in and around the school grounds and for creating action plans to tackle these issues.
Cherry Orchard Primary School holds the Eco School Green Flag. We are very proud of this achievement and the hard work and commitment shown by children from across the school, in their efforts towards achieving it.
Members of Eco Council are elected through a democratic process. Every junior class elects a representative. Children who would like to be considered for the role have the opportunity to prepare a speech, explaining what they would bring to the role. Children in each class are then able to vote for their Eco Council member.
The Eco Council meet at least once every half term. However, meetings are often more frequent, especially when members are planning big events.
Examples of projects and events undertaken by the Eco Council include a fancy dress competition to raise funds for the WWF, weekly eco friendly classroom checks, poster competitions and sponsored litter picks.
