St Peter's first Eco Council was elected in 2019 as part of the school's commitment to increasing our sustainability and protecting the environment around us. Each class has two representatives, voted by the class and together. The Eco Council representatives for 2019/20 are:
Reception: Tom and Sabine
Year 1: Cosi and Eli
Year 2: Remi and Gabriella
Year 3: George and Sara
Year 4: Eliona and Freddie
Year 5: Max and Matilda
Year 6: Ella and Jarran
We are working towards our Eco Schools awards, the first step of which was to carry out an environmental review of the school. The Eco-Council will now share the results of the review with the school and choose three key areas which we will work on to improve, with the help of the whole school community.

In November, we celebrated our first Environment Day to raise awareness of environmental issues and learn about small steps that we can all take to become more sustainable. There were many different activities for the children to have a go at including making reusable bags, creating Christmas decorations from natural materials and designing a zero waste packed lunch.
JUST ONE TREE
Also in November, the whole school came to school wearing green for a day to raise money for the charity Just One Tree. We raised over £300 which will go towards planting 300 trees in areas which have lost so much of their rainforests including Madagascar.
