Glyncoed Primary Eco Committee
Welcome to our Eco Committee Page
We are a like minded group of children and adults who are working together to improve the quality of our school environment. Our goal is to promote enviromental awareness as part of school life and in doing so we hope to decreasing Glyncoed's eco footprint.
This year we have opened the Eco Committee out to anyone from Years 1 to 6 as we feel we can have a bigger impact on improving our environment.
Mrs Chapman is very excited to get started on our Eco Action Plan with all of the new members of this fantastic club!
Stay tuned here for more updates and read our weekly minutes which we will be publishing live!
Eco Activities 2016-2017 Report
In Eco Club we do wide range of things that are concerned with environmental issues that come to our 21st century world so that our school will be one of the best in the country. As a school we do the best we can to keep a high reputation. This year we have taken part a lots of things like litter picking for our I-Can Eco Challenge, dealing with the problem of ‘Litter’ and learning about renewable energy in our Solar Energy workshops. We earned £250 for taking part in the ‘Litterless Project ‘ with Keep Wales Tidy which included us creating materials for a display on our problem and what we can do to solve it. All classes supported this project and we took the display to The National Museum of Wales where the public could talk to our pupils and try some of the activities that we developed. We have also been promoting saving energy throughout the school and by monitoring classes daily the pupils who have been Eco Warriors in the classroom. We give out the Energy Saving Penguin Awards each week in assembly to honour the winning classes. We also renewed our Platinum Eco Status for another year which was a great achievement and reflects our hard work and dedication to making a difference in our school and community.

Eco Committee News
Tuesday 17th October 2017:
Eco Committee were split into 4 amazing groups that re-created the Eco logo out of sticks and leaves. We had one year girl six from football club to choose a winner, she found it really hard to decide. After a long time of judging she finally found a winner (Group 1 and 2) this was a very fun activity to do (even though we ended up with muddy hands! And leaves stuck on our backs) we really enjoyed it!
