At St Luke’s, we are an Eco School and we have achieved our Eco Schools Green Flag Award with distinction for the second year in a row. Our Eco Team is very active in school and in the community. We strive to learn about and teach each other about global issues such as plastic pollution, energy use, sustainable travel, preservation of habitats and much more. Our pupils are confident to lead on projects that are important to them and we are proud of all that they continue to achieve. Our Eco Team motto is:
As a team, we work hard on a variety of different projects. An important part of the Eco-Schools process is measuring the impact of the work that we do. Some of the impact from the academic year 2022 – 2023:
We raised £1682.54 for charity.
We recycled approximately:
12 kg bottle tops
5 kg stationery
12 kg batteries
We shared approximately 80kg of food bags.
We donated approximately 50kg of food to local food banks.
Some of the successful projects we have worked on during 2022 - 2023 have been:
