The eco revolution at Cargilfield

"The Eco-Schools programme engages children and young people in key issues including the environment, sustainability, global citizenship and the value of a low carbon future." (Eco Schools 2019)

Cargilfield are part of the Eco Schools programme and are working hard to gain Green Flag status. The Eco-Schools programme has been engaging young people in taking positive actions that transform their lives. From its beginnings in a few European countries, the programme has expanded to effect change in some 59,000 schools in 68 countries across the globe. There has been a lot of overall eco-enthusiasm of pupils and staff throughout Cargilfield. We look forward to plans and developments unravelling throughout the school year.

The Upper School Eco Committee felt the recycling bins should be a focus so these have been implemented in the main foyer and will be in the Pre Prep after half term too. At Eco Club, children have been busy creating helpful posters as reminders of how to help improve the environment. They are looking at putting a paper bin in each classroom too. The next plan is to look at the location of the bins and look at how waste is disposed of offsite. The Pre-Prep are very excited to create an eco-club and receive their eco badges after half term. The Nursery have been picking up litter and growing their own vegetables too. There is definitely a green air around school!

Children are the future of our planet, so instilling good environmental practice in them is key. What have you recycled today?
