In September 2009 4 children from Primary 6 and 7 visited North Berwick High School to see their bee hives. They blogged about their adventures and posted up fantastic pictures. Visit the P7 blog “Health and wellbeing” page to hear about their trip.
We are looking forward to a visit from an Eco Schools assessor soon to assess us for The Green Flag Award…date to be confirmed…watch this space!!!
Well done to all those who entered the bee quiz – eco badges have gone to winners in each class.
Also….Please read P7s blog for a report by Ben and Nikki on their recent Eco Committee visit to North Berwick High School to see the Bee Hives.
We have a number of Eco related enterprizes we are working on this year. Each of these projects are linked to the curriculum and the Eco Schools Scotland Award Scheme. Below are comments posted from the pupils in the Eco Committee updating you on our progress toward each action.
They have been busy bees this year!!
There will be a rag bag collection Thursday 2nd April 2009.
Please bring your rags and unwanted textiles in for collection before 2/4/09
Bin liners are coming out this week to each family
Our last collection in November raised £80 which the Eco Committee have spent on paper pot makers, Eco hats and seeds for their Eco Enterprizes. We will receive £300 for a tonne of rags – Which would be fantastic!
Gullane Primary School has registered to take part in WWF Earth Hour, read on or ask pupils for details…
Show the world you care!
At 8.30pm on 28 March 2009, WWF wants a billion people to turn off their lights for one hour – WWF’s Earth Hour – sending a powerful message from all around the globe that we want action on climate change.
We want as many people as possible to be involved in this historic global event. Here are just some of the ways you can join in.
Every single person who signs up to WWF’s Earth Hour sends the message that they want action to tackle climate change!
If a billion people sign up, the event will create an overwhelming message which WWF will take to world leaders at the UN climate summit in Copenhagen, in December 2009.
So make your statement and add your voice to WWF’s Earth Hour.
We are having a Day of Action as we work towards our Green Flag Award. May 13th 2009 will be Green Day at Gullane Primary, children and staff will be asked to dress in Green. We will be out and about cleaning up the mean streets of Gullane as part of Scotland’s Spring Clean. We are lucky enough to have a visit from our local beach ranger to talk to us about wildlife and plants at Gullane Beach, then P6 & 7 will be involved in a litter pick up down at Gullane Beach. There will also be a big focus on energy reduction by the whole school.
Keep logging on to find out more about GULLANE GREEN DAY!
Today/ monday 19th jan 09 In eco we have been looking at our targets that we have to meet for our green flag. We looked at a sheet of questions that were given to us a cople of weeks back. The feed back really helped us think about all the things our school has to improve on for the green flag to be awarded to us.
Please download this questionnaire and fill it in.
Send it back to the school as an email attachment – the address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you – The Eco Team!
