Eco-Warriors is a club with the mission of making St. Laurence Primary School green, clean and sustainable. The club is part of the international award winning Eco-Schools programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a simple framework to help make sustainability an integral part of school life. The Eco-Warriors aim to meet the nine topics of Eco-Schools, which include:

  • Energy - To reduce the amount of energy used to reduce our carbon footprint.
  • Water - To explore the problems of a ‘water crisis’ and other issues surrounding water supply.
  • Biodiversity - To try to increase the biodiversity within school.
  • School Grounds - To ensure that the school grounds are used effectively and kept clean.
  • Healthy Living - To ensure that pupils are aware of what a ‘healthy diet’ is.
  • Transport - To encourage eco-friendly transport.
  • Litter - To reduce the amount of litter on site.
  • Waste - To reduce/monitor the amount of waste from the school grounds.
  • Global Citizenship - To teach skills, values, attitudes and knowledge that will allow pupils to participate in a truly global society.

Each month the Eco Council meets with Miss Hourigan to look at ways to make St. Laurence a more environmentally friendly school. Children and staff are working hard to learn, encourage and develop an eco-school. We have a strong Eco Committee who are working hard to raise an awareness of the need to look after our planet. The children have set up a committee which meets regularly to consider ways to become more Eco friendly and how to save money by recycling. We have just started our journey to achieve the Bronze award, to achieve this we have completed an Environmental Review of our school and created an Action Plan. Our Action plan includes our Eco Warriors who switch off lights and laptops, empty the paper recycle bins. To read our Action Plan please follow the link.
