Eco Warriors

Eco Warriors

Botwell House Catholic School is proud to be an Eco School. We have a team of keen, green Eco-Warriors who sort out recycling on a day to day basis and lead the school in different initiatives, such as how to save energy, how to care for our habitat and how to reduce rubbish waste. There are 24 The Key Stage 2 Eco Warriors, two for each class.

We are currently working towards our Green Flag ECO badge award. The Eco Warriors have discussed what we need to do and have written an action plan.  From this plan we identified some things that we felt were most important in helping our school to become more environmentally friendly.  

Our main priorities for the year are to:

  • Encourage children to recycle correctly within the classroom.
  • Try and reduce our energy bills by turning off lights and computers.
  • Encourage children to respect our habitat and the wildlife and plants within it.
  • Encourage children to walk to school.

Posters are in every classroom to remind all children and staff to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle and also be mindful of water use. One of our roles as Eco Warriors is to recycle materials such as paper and save energy where possible. Regular inspections are completed to show whether or not the correct materials are being recycled in each class and whether electrical energy is being used wisely.  An energy audit will also be completed as part of the 'Switch off Fortnight' campaign that we have joined.

We also take part in a litter pick activity after play and lunch times to ensure our school is kept clean.
