Silver Award - May 2011
Sir William Robertson’s hard-working Eco-Council has been rewarded with the Silver Award by the Eco-Schools organisation.
In order to achieve this they have produced an Eco-Code , outlining ways in which we, as a school, can become even more eco-friendly. As a group, the council put forward a number of suggestions and measures that would contribute towards this. Each base group was given the list and asked to vote on the three measures they thought most important and effective. The council compiled the results and identified the ten most popular ideas, which were used to produce our Eco-Code.
In order to remind both staff and pupils of our commitment to be as eco-friendly as possible, the code is now on display on all classroom notice boards.
We will now be working towards the ultimate accolade of Green Flag status!
Bronze Award - Easter 2010
We’re thrilled to announce that SWRHS has achieved the Eco Bronze Award for sustainability, which means that our school has taken its first steps towards its goal of becoming a sustainable school. In school a group of nine pupils from the four houses have joined together to form an Eco Council. We have visited Lincolnshire’s Sustainable Schools Road show and saw lots of ideas to give us inspiration for how to make our school sustainable. We saw wind turbines, greenhouses made out of recycled plastic bottles and a very impressive mountain bike display team. We took our favourite ideas to base groups and asked them to vote for the two best ideas to help the school. Pupils chose to see the MAD Mountain Bike Display Team and to hold a themed day for sustainability next term.
