The Eco Warrior team is run by Miss Burgin and Mrs Fretwell. The Eco-Warriors have an active role in school. They raise awareness about sustainability and encourage everyone to be good at recycling and saving energy. We encourage good habits for the future, being an Eco-Warrior is an extremely important job and is one to be very proud of.
At Whiston Junior and Infants School, we care about…
• We turn off lights, computers and other electrical equipment when they are not being used.
• We stop to think before we put anything in the bin.
• We use the right bins for our recycling.
• We turn off the taps when we are not using them.
• We eat balanced meals.
• We are active every day.
• We enjoy being outside.
The creatures around us
• We encourage wildlife into our school.
Our impact on the world
• We understand what we can do to protect the environment.
Bottle top art
The Eco Warriors have been working really hard to collect and organise bottle tops. These will then be used to create some beautiful artwork for around the school building.
Hopefully we will be able to create something as wonderful as this!
Eco Warrior's took part in organising a preloved sale for the school. They spread the word to other children and put out a text to parents (saving paper). They then collected various items, priced them and sold them to new loving owners. They even made their own eco warrior pots to sell at the sale which were made from recycled plastic bottle bottoms, zips and then decorations. This was all in aid of raising money for less fortunate children in India.
In total the Eco Warriors managed to raise over £65! Which went towards esential items that the children needed in India. For example: stationary equipment, lunch boxes, water bottles and other items to help them at school.
Where the money went... pre-loved sale
Miss Burgin went to India in the Easter holidays to volunteer and help the less fortunate. Here is where all the money went that was raised. Miss Burgin managed to buy a lunch box and water bottle for every child who went to the summer school. She also bought pencils, pens, maths equipment and other pieces of stationary for the children to use at school and during their exams.
"It was such an eye opening experience! We take so much for granted in this country and it is so heart warming to see how grateful all the children and adults were to receive our gifts and support." - Miss Burgin
