The Eco-Committee is now officially up and running! We will meet regularly to discuss environmental issues affecting our school and we will make decisions about ways in which we can make our school a more eco-friendly place to learn. Please check out our new notice board outside the gym hall for further information. We would appreciate it if you would not lean on it when you are waiting in the corridor!!! Thanks!
Law Primary has (in 2007) been awarded a Silver Award from Eco-Schools!! We are all very proud to receive this for all the hard work we’ve done! After the Christmas holidays the Eco-Committee will meet again to revise the action plan which will lead us forward to our first Green Flag. A newsletter will be sent out in January with more updates!
Law Primary School will be restarting the composting again after the October holidays. Last session we had such an enormous response from everyone that our big compost bin could not cope with the all the fruit peelings! This year we have decided to compost our waste on a rota system. Please look below for when your year group will be responsible for composting their waste (this means that someone from each class will empty and wash their own class bin in the big compost bin in the sensory garden).

THERE WILL BE NO COMPOSTING IN THE MONTH OF JUNE DUE TO THE WARMER WEATHER AND WE WILL BE DOING MORE GARDENEING BY THIS TIME!
The Eco-Committee have gathered all of the wish lists together and have voted for their top 3 favourites. The priorities for this session will be the following:
1. to find out about the possibility of getting solar roof panels
2. to raise money to buy more picnic benches for the playground
3. to paint more murals in the playground
We will use some money from our Eco-Grant, which will follow shortly (we hope!!!) and we will try to raise money for any shortfalls. We will be asking parents to help with bigger jobs like the painting! This involvement will help us to tick another box for our Silver Award!!!
