The ECO Team

The whole school took part in the Keep Britain Tidy Campaign of the Great British Spring Clean 2022. We pledged 30 bags and surpassed this, we have so far a total of 35 bags and we are still litter picking for this week! Here is just a small selection of photos of St Alban's children litter picking in the community.

Thankyou for your support during fair-trade fortnight the children and staff enjoyed a fair-trade snack afternoon. We donated £50 to the Fairtrade organisation and also bought some CAFOD World gifts to help farmers in developing countries. From our work on fair trade, which has been over several years, we have been awarded our third fair-trade award of FAIRACTIVE, which is valid for two years. Children took part in a poster competition and had a whole school snack and drink day. Learning about fair-trade and raising awareness. Many thanks to all children, staff and parents. From the ECO TEAM and Mrs Hartley Eco Schools Coordinator.

Fairtrade Fortnight - For Fairtrade Fortnight the children took part in a poster and colouring competition. Here are some of the entries from Year 1, 3 and 6. Winners to announced soon.

As a whole school response to COP26 every child in school has learnt about climate change. Children have also decorated a leaf and older children have also made a pledge on what they can do to help. Here are a selection of our leaves.

Well done St Alban's for joining in with CAFOD Eyes of the World. CAFOD tweeted us a response back for taking part as a whole school project.

As a whole school we have been taking part in CAFOD The eyes of the world. As Britain hosts world leaders for the United Nations' climate change talks – COP26. They will make important decisions that will shape the future of our global family. We are learning about climate change and how we can help.

This term we have had a special assembly for Years 4 & 5 and Reception & Year 1 from Bob who works for CAFOD. It was a Go Green Assembly learning about the environment and to help others in our world

In May 2021 as part of a whole school project raising awareness with links to the Eco Schools My Actions Matter campaign all children in school learnt that all our actions matter. Children reflected on their connection with nature, how to be compassionate towards the earth and how our actions link to it. They also discussed in class what they could do to help the environment. Photos show the display of handprints from every child in school who learnt they can all make a difference and also one photo shows St Alban's children in action helping to care for our world.

For Fair trade fortnight children learnt about Fairtrade choices and then entered a “design a chocolate bar” competition. Thanks to prize donations made by Julie Smith co-op member pioneer of Wilpshire and Livesey Branch Road Co-op.

At the end of term we had a Trashion Fashion show. Designers and models, showcased clothes made in the after school club. We also had an after school club designing a reusable bag for plastic free bag day, which children modelled. Our special guest to the event was Glynis Goldsbrough from the Schools Sustainability Conference, who brought goodies in for the children who had taken part at the conference in performing a rap, zero lunch and Trashion Show.

Mrs Hartley and Mrs Bolton took 8 children selected from the Eco Team, Fair Trade Action Team and Trashion After School Club. They represented the school at Ewood Park on the 20th June attending the North West Sustainability Conference taking part in various workshop activities throughout the day including a zero waste packed lunch challenge, poster, Trashion Show and a Rap.  We won a £25 cheque for all our efforts. Well done St Albans!
