We have been helping the school to be more eco-friendly. Our team of Eco Warriors have special jobs to do in their spare time. They are:
Every Friday the team look around the playground for any rubbish that should be in the bin. They clean it up by using gloves, aprons and litter pickers. We do this so our playground is safe for animals and children. It also looks so much better and cleaner without any litter.
At least three times a week the team gather the recycling bins which hold paper, cardboard, tin cans and any plastic. They take these bins to the big blue recycling bin in the front playground. We do this so we do not send as much rubbish to our local landfill site.
Every day the team walk around the classrooms to check that any electrical equipment that is not being used is turned off. Each class is marked and the class with the least amount of points at the end of the week gets an Eco Class of the Week certificate.
Hilmarton has achieved its SILVER AWARD. The Silver Award shows we have improved as an Eco School. The highest award in Britain is the Green Flag, not many schools have this but this is what we are aiming for.
