We are Rotherfield school's Eco council a.k.a the Planet Protectors! We meet once a week to discuss ways of making our school a better place to be as well as learning about ways in which we can be more responsible residents of planet Earth. Our mission is to protect the environment through a number of Eco-friendly actions.
In the spring term, we focused on saving electricity. We put stickers on all of the electrical appliances around school so the children know what can and cannot be turned off. As well as stickers, we put mini posters around the light switches, to encourage people to save electricity. We gave an assembly to the school to teach the other children about what we had learnt.
Keep an eye out for what Eco club are up to and ask an Eco club member how you can get involved.
We are very excited to announce that we have recently been awarded the Bronze Eco Award. We are now working towards the Silver Award.
