The Eco team was launched in 2021. This is run by Mrs Pennell, a year two teacher. Much like the school council, children who would like to be part of the eco team explain to the class why they would be a good representative, and the children have a secret vote to elect their representatives.
The eco team have enjoyed taking part in various activities so far including helping the council to plant trees, and entering the Colchester Schools in Bloom competition where we were very pleased to be awarded third place with a special award for ‘being a good eco school’.
The members of the eco team visited the town hall and were presented with the trophy by the Mayor. This was a very proud moment for the team and the school were delighted with how hard the team had worked.
