School Eco Council


Meeting of the School Eco Council – Mrs Fairlie


  1. Rechargeable white board pens

The council would like to ask all teachers if they could purchase the small whiteboard pens that can be recharged along with the plastic pots of ink to save throwing away the plastic pens when they run out of ink, which they frequently do.

2.Recycle plastic pens

A scheme has been found that allows plastic pens such as white board pens, handwriting  pens and felt tip pens to be recycled.  The Council would like each classroom to have a box where old pens are placed and have decided to create a child friendly poster for each classroom to remind adults and pupils what can be recycled.  The boxes will be emptied termly and taken to the recycling point in Bury st Edmunds.

3.The council would like to run an assembly on the importance of littler and being mindful of throwing away and recycling correctly.  They queried the bins in the playground and if they were being used correctly. Assembly to be run in the new year.
