The schools Eco committee take turns to empty recycling bins and organise litter picks.
St Catherine’s Eco committee decided on having a non-uniform day to raise money for outdoor learning equipment, such as bug catchers, magnifying glasses and compasses. Each class have raised beds for food growing and collaborate with other local schools to hire a professional gardener for lessons.
Teachers have embedded biodiversity into the whole school. They also created lesson plans around COP26 and took part in interactive workshops so everyone could understand and get involved with the global conversation around climate change. Each class designed their own superhero for sustainability.
