During the course of the year, the Eco Committee have been meeting on a regular basis to talk about important issues involving both our local and wider communities.
To start, we looked at the importance of recycling and the alternatives we could use instead of plastics. Through the children’s independent research we found that plastic takes a really long time to decompose. We were then invited to take part in the National Environmental Conference. Thoresby, along with other schools in the city, took part in a debate about an oil company wanting to dig through the Rainforest.
This term we have been looking at conservation and climate change. We had an artist come into school during Kaleidoscope to help us create our very own mural stating ‘we are never too small to make a difference’.
