We are the children that make it happen in our school (in an environmental aspect of course). This page will help to explain what we at Fitz are doing to help the environment.

These are some pictures from our Green Flag Assessment on Thursday 28th January.

We’ll keep you posted of the outcome.

 

We have signed up for the ‘Clean for the Queen’ campaign, with more news regarding this to follow. 

Topic Areas we are focussing on for 2015-16:

 

Energy Use             

 

 

The last time we looked our solar panels had generated 10181 KWh and the carbon emissions this had avoided was 5803 kg.

 

The Eco Reps ensure that their classroom lights are turned off when everyone has left the class.

 

Information to follow about our next ‘Switch Off Day’!

 

Paper Waste/Use

 

 

This month we have set each class the challenge of using less paper. Each class has been set a photocopying limit and there will be a prize for the class who has photocopied the least. The Eco Reps are being vigilant about used paper going in the recycling bin. 

 

Litter

 

Make sure it goes in the correct bin.

 

Can it be composted?

Remember the composter, off of the path on the way to our tennis courts. If it’s your litter picking duty remember to add both wet and dry waste.

 

Who’s turn is it to keep the grounds tidy?

Remember to recycle your plastic bottles we have used funds to purchase another plastics bin in The Nest.

 

Bristol Textile Recyclers

 

 

We are now using Bristol Textiles with the recycling of unwanted clothing, shoes, bags and belts! http://btr-ltd.co.uk/home-btr

 

School Grounds:

 

 

Over the last year we have planted new trees and shrubs in our top field.

 

In Term 3 we will be getting every class gardening & will have rejuvenated our raised beds!

 

Our Gardening Club will start again in Term 5 on Tuesday and Thursday lunchtimes.

 

Solar School News: We’ve done it! Thanks to all your help we have reached our total of £16k needed for the 40 panels.  More information should be available on our Solar Schools page.
