Our School Council has 14 members, 2 children from each class (years R-6) who were elected by their peers. Its purpose is to represent the views of all pupils and improve the school.
Their main objective is to make Greenlands Primary a greener school. They observed many changes that they could make to improve our carbon footprint. Firstly they wanted to eliminate single use plastic for school lunches. They carried out a survey of the whole school and the majority of pupils supported their ideas. They then emailed the catering company and have been successful in significantly reducing the amount of single use plastic used.
The School Council is currently researching ways to reuse and recycle items such as pens, ink cartridges and batteries. Next term they will be aiming to set up a walking bus so watch this space for an update!
