Welcome to the Eco Council's digital board. Here, you can find out about all of the things Heath's Eco Council have been up to.
It's Official: Heath is an Eco-School!
We are delighted to now be an Eco-School. Not only did we achieve the award, we also gained a distinction!
The Eco-CodeOur eco councillors have worked hard to create an Eco-Code that demonstrates our commitment to improving our environmental performance and doing all we can to protect our planet. This is our 2022-23 Eco-Code.
What have we been up to?
Litter Pick with Rubbish Walks
On Saturday 17th June 2023, volunteers from the school and Kesgrave Wombles came to help the Eco Council and Rubbish Walks clean up the school and local area. We picked up over 4,000 pieces of litter! This sounds like a lot, but the it was less than last year, and the litter was all dated 2023. This is great news as it means we haven't got lots of old litter in the school's local area.
Fairtrade Bake Sale
Did you attend our Fairtrade bake sale? Ann Fox reached out to us after seeing last year's Eco-Code and saw that we encourage everyone to 'open their mind to Fairtrade'. She was very impressed and wanted to do some work with us. She attended an Eco Council meeting and helped us to host a Fairtrade bake sale. The money raised at the sale went to The Fairtrade Foundation.
Walk, Scoot or Cycle to School
The Eco Councillors and Junior Road Safety Officers hosted a walk to school event in October.
We must say a big WELL DONE to 2GH, with 81% of their pupils walking, cycling or scooting to school over the week.
On 'Clear Air Day' 2022, Suffolk County Council named us their competition winners! Our Eco Council and Heath News created a video to highlight the impact of air pollution and what we can do to help. We won ourselves some new bike and scooter racks.
