Eco Committee Celebrate Woodland Trust Gold Award

Throughout the school year, the Eco Committee has been working diligently to achieve the Woodland Trust’s Green Tree School Gold Award.

Collaborating with the geography department, students completed the Wellbeing Challenge by participating in outdoor lessons and becoming more environmentally aware.

The group also developed an Eco-Code for all staff to follow, promoting actions such as turning off lights and projectors when not in use and, reducing paper consumption. Additionally, a smaller team from the Eco Committee launched a campaign to encourage the Basildon community to plant more trees in open spaces.

In recognition of their hard work, the committee was rewarded with a fun filled party day where they enjoyed face painting, drawing, scavenger hunts, and gardening activities.
