Are you passionate about the environment?
Do you enjoy spending time outdoors? Do you want to make a real difference? If so, this could be the perfect opportunity for you to shine!
We are looking for volunteers from across all Year groups to join our brand new ‘Eco Club’ which will be run by staff and ‘Student Eco Leaders’. We will meet in CT11 each Wednesday from 3:30-4:40 from 8th June. The roles and activities will be varied and will include the following:
- Collecting litter both on school grounds and in the surrounding areas
- Collecting recycling from the classrooms
- Organising new recycling projects such as batteries, soft plastics and school uniform
- Planting trees and wild flowers in the school grounds
- Making, fitting and maintaining bird boxes and bird feeders
- Building a bug hotel
- Monitoring and reducing energy consumption across the school
- Creating social media content and assembly resources
Richmond School and Sixth Form College are aiming to achieve our Eco School Green Flag by the end of this year. Eco Leaders have conducted a review, drawn up a plan of action, and identified three key areas to focus on: biodiversity, energy consumption and waste.
We will meet initially in CT11 before splitting off to work on different projects, depending upon staff availability.
If this sounds like the club for you, then come along to CT11 on Wednesday, June 8th. Our first job is to clean up the bridle path at the bottom of the school field.
