    Eco Monitors

    News Update: An application form for the Green Flag has been submitted - fingers crossed we will have an assessor out in the Autumn Term!

     

    Eco Monitors

     

    Our Eco-Monitors are volunteers from each class who attend regular meetings to devise ways of making Thrupp School more eco-friendly. Our Eco-Monitors help develop and monitor strategies for saving energy and reducing waste. They regularly monitor the energy use in school, encourage the recycling and composting of as much waste as possible and think of new ways the school can be more sustainable.

    We are doing lots of brilliant Eco-work at Thrupp School, however a recent survey revealed that not everyone feels involved or knows about what we are aiming to achieve. Our target for this next term is to get everyone motivated and included in our Green Mission!

     

    Follow our progress on here, on our display board in the hall,  in the school newsletter or you can speak to Mrs Ewens or one of the class representatives. Feb 2018
