Eco-Schools at Brunswick
The Eco-Schools Programme Eco-Schools is an international award programme providing a simple framework to help make sustainability an integral part of school life. Eco-Schools can help enhance the curriculum and get the whole school united behind something important.
What do Eco-Schools do? We work on a variety of environmental themes, ranging from litter and waste to healthy living and biodiversity.
Pupils are the driving force. They form a Green Team with one child elected in each class and carry out an audit to assess the environmental performance of the school. In conjunction with the rest of the school and the wider community, it is the pupils that decide the environmental themes they want to address and how they’re going to do it.
At Brunswick the Green Team, energy and recycling monitors, chicken team, tuck shop team, gardeners, cyclists, walkers and every individual in the school community contributes to our on-going success.
Currently we are being assessed for the renewal of the Eco-School green flag award. If successful we are proud to say that this will be the fifth consecutive time we have achieved green flag status in over ten years of Eco-School work.
