Edgeborough is proud to announce that it has achieved the Eco-Schools Bronze award. The eco-committee has been working on a number of projects including trying to eliminate single use plastic from the school site, reducing our food waste through a house competition and looking at ways to reduce air pollution in the school. After a lot of hard work we have received our bronze award. The pupils are now focussing on achieving a silver award.
Other initiatives at the school include the installation of solar panels and the launch of a very exciting campaign called the Big Battery Hunt. The children have been given collection boxes for old batteries and have been learning how important it is to recycle batteries and what happens when people do not. Headmaster Dan Thornburn said, “It’s great to see the children taking ownership of this project. They have so many ideas and it’s the School’s job to help facilitate these fantastic initiatives wherever we can. It is wonderful to see their energy and enthusiasm for something so important.”
