Here at Harvey Road School our children have created an action group they have called Eco-Battlers. The aim of this group of children is to:
- Encourage everyone within the school community to become environmentally aware
- To educated children about environmental issues and the impact of global warming
- To identify ways that children, parents and staff can work together to make a more environmentally sustainable future
In September, children from Year 1 to Year 6 can nominate themselves for election onto the Eco-Battler Group. To be successful, children are required to write an manifesto and present this to the children in the class who will carry out a secret ballot to identify the two children who will represent the class views. As you can imagine this is a highly competitive event and children work hard to succeed in this process.
As always this will be a very busy year and the Eco-Battlers have agreed some exciting projects that will be their focus for this academic year.
