Old Basing Infant School Eco Warriors group was set up in 2017. The children are elected by their class mates. They work with Mrs Nightingale to consider how the school can be more environmentally friendly and how we can save resources and energy.
The Eco Warriors have identified 5 areas that they want to improve for the school.
1. Saving electricity
2. Keeping our environment tidy
4. Saving water
The Eco Warriors have been thinking of ways they can save electricity around school. They are currently carrying out spot checks on classrooms to ensure lights and computers are turned off when they are not in use.
The work carried out by the Eco Warriors links very closely with our rights respecting ethos. The articles below are taken from the UNCRC and are covered during Eco Warrior meetings.
Article 12: children have the right to say what they think should happen and to have their opinions taken into account.
Article 24: children have the right to a clean environment.
