Arthur Terry has commenced its journey to become an International Green Flag Award, Eco-School! The programme is designed to raise environmental awareness among young people with international reach extending to sixty-seven countries.
Our school is now part of this global community working to create environmental change for the benefit of future generations. In order to start our process and begin thinking about small changes we can all make to our everyday lives, students were asked to make a small eco-commitment.
Students and staff across the school made personal commitments on outlines of their hands with pledges ranging from using reusable water bottles to walking to school. The pledges were displayed on an Eco-Pledge Tree on Thursday 25th October.
We hope that the new Eco-School Committee will represent the beginning of an environmental shift at Arthur Terry, with the whole community making a contribution to the global environment through sustainable local actions.
Watch this space!
Mrs Martin & the Eco-Committee.
