The Eco-Team at Grove Road
The Eco council is a special kind of council, designed to enable the school to help the environment. At Grove Road, pupils were all invited to apply to be part of the Eco Team. The team is made up of one elected pupil from each class who meets with the Eco co-ordinator, Miss Pollard, regularly to discuss and plan how to improve both the Grove Road school environment and that of the wider world. The Eco-team members feedback the key highlights of their meetings to keep everyone informed of their plans.
We are at present working towards our Green Flag Award from the Eco schools organisation. Eco Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life.
Our Grove Road Eco Team Representatives are:
George, Annabelle, Ruby, Rosalie, Toby, Mia, Isla, Heidi, Isla, Evie, Jacob, Georgia, Isaac, Elizabeth.
At Grove Road, we are passionate about the environment and looking after the world we live in. We are looking forward to making a difference and helping to improve the environment we live and learn in.
