Bolton by Bowland CE Primary School children and staff are working hard to learn, encourage and develop an eco school.
We have been awarded levels 1,2,3,4 and 5 RHS Campaign for School Gardening. We encourage all children to participate in gardening activites around the School
We have been awarded the Green Flag for all our endeavours. We currently recycle paper, batteries, toner cartridges and compost all our waste organic material. We are also in the process of setting up a recycling system for CDs and DVDs.
We have a strong Eco Committee who are working hard to raise an awareness of the need to look after our planet. The children have set up a committee which meets regularly to consider ways to become more Eco friendly and how to save money by recycling.
Children have monitors who switch off lights and laptops, empty the recycle bins. We even have water hippos to preserve water.
Last Christmas the children organised Eco Christmas Cards. Instead of children and staff sending out Christmas cards to each other, the children have designed Christmas pictures which we can buy, write our greeting to all the children in school, and stick them onto a board in the entrance hall. 1 Christmas picture for all the people on our Christmas card list - brilliant idea Eco Committee. The money raised was shared between various Eco projects within school.
