“Walk to School Wednesday”
An initiative to reduce car emissions around our school and to make our site safer for pedestrians
Every Wednesday, Eco council would like to reduce traffic outside school—just for one day. Everyone will have to walk (some distance) and not a single car to drop off outside the premises! School council encourage children to cycle, walk or scooter to school.
“Fun Food Friday”
An initiative to reduce plastic waste in lunchboxes
The Eco Council propose that Monday to Thursday is plastic free in school lunchboxes. Yes, not a single bit of plastic! Healthy food choices from Monday to Thursday and then a treat for the last day of the week!
On a Friday, items in plastic will be allowed—i.e. a chocoloate biscuit, yogurt in plastic or packet of crisps.
Walk to School Wednesday was the most popular choice but not by many votes!
