We are very proud to have achieved the Eco Schools Green Flag award. This is the highest possible and reflects the school's committment to reducing, reusing and recycling.
The school Eco Warriors are very busy and whilst also contributing to larger projects including the annual Hilmarton Primary School Earth Day they also have responsibility for different aspects of everyday school life.
Every Friday the team look around the playground for any rubbish that should be in the bin. They clean it up using gloves, aprons and litter pickers. We do this so our playground is safe for children and animals. It also looks so much better and cleaner without any litter.
At least three times a week the team gather the recycling bins which hold paper, cardboard, tin cans and plastic. They take these bins to the big blue recycling bin in the front playground. We do this so we do not send as much rubbish to our local landfill site.
The team walk around the classrooms at break times to ensure that any electrical equipment that is not being used is turned off. Each class is scored and the class with the least number of points at the end of the week is announced in assembly on Friday and awarded the Eco Class of the Week certificate.
