Welcome to Holy Cross Primary school's Eco Warrior Webpage. This page will tell you about our brand new Eco Warriors and some of the work we are doing. We have just recently appointed our new Eco Warriors who are now working hard to encourage the rest of the school to become more eco - friendly.
Why do we have Eco Warriors?
Being an Eco Warrior is an ideal opportunity for our pupils to get more involved in the way our school is run and help us to be more environmentally friendly. It provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made. Eco Warriors take on the responsibility of expressing their own views, but also the views of their peers as well as passing on information from eco meetings. As an Eco Warrior, pupils have the opportunity to develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation.
Who can be an Eco Warrior?
Any child at Holy Cross Primary can become an Eco Warrior. In September pupils from each class across the school are invited to write a letter of application indicating what they think makes a great Eco Warrior and then then the staff and students vote who they believe will be the best ECO warriors.
What do our Eco Warriors do?
Our Eco Warriors help to care for out school environment: they help others to follow our eco-code, monitor our energy use in the school and encourage teachers and children to recycle. Eco Warriors will take part in discussions and votes and feedback any relevant information to their class. Members will meet regularly with Mr Toogood to discuss their ideas
