Hillside are part of the national Eco Schools programme and we are currently working towards gaining our Bronze Award. Each class has chosen two Eco Council representatives who meet once a week to work on raising the profile of Eco issues within the school.
This year, we are working on the areas of Waste, Litter and Water. We are currently running some whole-school projects to raise awareness of waste, including a “reducing plastic waste challenge” that children are taking part in at home.
Regular assemblies are held to feed back on work done and raise awareness of global and local environmental issues. Eco council children discuss ideas they have for what we can do as a school.
