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 meet to 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. Thrupp School is very environmentally conscious and hold the Eco-School Silver Award. We are currently working towards the Green Flag award.
Our Eco Warriors have been carrying out some important fieldwork for the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO). They are investigating whether what birds eat is linked to changing bird populations. The children will complete surveys 3 times during the year.
