The sub-committee for the promotion of using sustainable bags will meet along with the “tattie committee” on Wednesday 8thFebruary, at 11.45am, with Mrs Christian.
The Eco-Committee have to ask their classes, what vegetables or herbs they would like to grow in the garden or greenhouse, bring the results to the next meeting.
Also, what kind of playground equipment, made of natural materials, would the pupils like in the playground?
It was suggested that the schools attending the Eco Summit would bring displays with them, showing the eco work that they have been doing in their schools. Maybe, parents should be invited as well.
The Eco-Committee was asked to remind their classes to use the bin in the dining hall for plastic bottles.
The next meeting will be held on Thursday 1stMarch 2012. Catrina will chair this meeting and Clare and Esther will take the minutes.
