Here at Stanstead we do our very best to conserve energy and recycle whenever we can.
Each class has two green monitors who join together to make the Eco-committee. They meet once a fortnight to discuss ways in which we have to make our school more sustainable. we are working towards the Eco-school award. At the moment we have achieved the bronze award and the silver award, our aim is to be the green flag. We look at the 9 topics and try to make improvements in each area.
Stanstead were very lucky to be visited by the W.I.S.E (waste in school) team. Each class worked with the W.I.S.E. team on various activities around recycling. The green monitors then conducted a waste audit around the school looking at the waste in bins. From this they then produced a school action plan and made 4 pledges. The first pledge was to ensure all paper and card was to be recyled. Each class was then given a new bin for recycled materials. Their second pledge was to order a recycled container for batteries. This is now kept in the reception area for school and parents to use. The next pledge was to create a school composting system They ordered and labelled mini compost bins which have been distributed around school. The green monitors then empty these daily into the larger compost bin. Finally it was noticed from the waste audit that there was a lot of plastic not being recycled, so we therefore ordered a recycle bin to be used specifically for plastics.
The green monitors then held a special assembly so they could share what they have done and also to share what projects they will have in the future. Please look in our photo album for pictures of all the projects that the Green Monitors are involved in including the assembly.
