St Joseph's R.C. Primary School

Eco Committee

What does our Eco Committee do?

The eco committee in a primary school in Wales plays a crucial role in promoting environmental awareness and sustainability amongst pupils and staff. Comprised of pupils and teachers, the eco committee spearheads initiatives aimed at reducing the school's ecological footprint and fostering a culture of environmental stewardship. Our responsibilities include organising recycling programs, advocating for energy conservation measures, maintaining school gardens, and implementing educational activities on topics such as biodiversity and climate change. By engaging the school community in practical eco-friendly actions and educational campaigns, the eco committee not only contributes to the preservation of the local environment but also instils lifelong values of environmental responsibility in the pupils.


Who is on our Eco Committee?


Our eco committee involves all of our Year 6 children. They meet regularly to complete the activities in our action plan.
