Our Eco Council
Looking after the environment has become and increasingly important part of our daily life at Wilshere-Dacre. The Eco Council has been running for about 15 years now, devoting time to improving the environment around us and running projects that enable us to make small steps to help the planet and reduce our impact. We meet fortnightly to discuss issues chosen by the children and the eco councillors then feedback to their classes and bring the results of these discussions back to our meetings. We often hold whole school assemblies and competitions to make announcements to the whole school and regularly take part in activities such as litter picking, tree planting and bird watching.
The Eco Council is made up of 2 children from each class (voted in by the class members) and changes annually. The current eco committee is:
We have been awarded a Green Flag (with distinction) by Eco-Schools!
