Our Eco ethos at Dinnington is:
"We will take care of our environment and our world that we live in and keep it safe for future generations."
As part of this as a school we include the following as part of our curriculum:
· Global Citizenship
· School Grounds
· Healthy lifestyle
· Water and Energy awareness
Our Eco warriors ensure that people turn off the lights, taps and computers around the school. They make sure all our classes recycle paper, plastic bottles and fruit waste. Every class has a vegetable patch in school to look after and we offer fruit as a break time snack
We have also been involved in recycling aluminium cans. This has not been as successful as we had hoped. Each class does have a bin, so the Eco team would like you to try and bring your cans into school. The money this raises goes into school funds. Our aim this term is to acquire the Eco Schools national green flag status. Also we will be looking at ways that we can raise enough money to buy a solar panel for Chembe Basic School in Chembe, Kalulushi, Zambia. Anyone with ideas could use the Eco- suggestion box.
