Sneinton Eco Council
'BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS AND DO THE WORK.'
1 Chronicles 28:20
We are the Sneinton Eco Council 2022-23
Our role in school is to raise awareness of climate change, deforestation, saving energy, recycling, composting, littering and planting around school.
We meet once a fortnight on a Wednesday afternoon in the pupil leadership room to hold our committee meetings, discuss and explore eco issues and how we can address them as a school community.
Our committee consists of 17 children, Mrs Massey (Eco Lead), Mr Lowe, Mrs Pruszak, Mrs Shilcock and Mrs Lack, our Catering Manager.
Please contact Mrs Massey for more details.

- Working towards our Eco School Flag Award

You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
you put everything under their feet:
all flocks and herds,
and the animals of the wild,
the birds in the sky,
and the fish in the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.
