Dear Aboyne families
At Aboyne Lodge we like the children to get involved in making decisions and running pupil-led projects. The eco-committee is one such council at Aboyne and we have the role of looking where we can make a difference to the school and local communities, as well as the wider natural world.
I am delighted to let you know that the new eco-committee members that have been voted in by the pupils of each class for academic year 2018-19 are:
Clem & Sienna Y1, Ronan & Isla Y2, Alby & Alice Y3, Joshie & Allegra Y4, Sebastian & Maisie Y5 and Harry & Alya Y6.
We will meet at intervals throughout each term, to decide on tasks for the following weeks and to respond to any eco-related issues that may be going on at school or further afield.
At our first meeting, we decided that we should remind all children and adults in our school community about the importance of looking after our environment and not wasting energy. We decided we will put reminder posters up around the school and that we will award children with eco-certificates for especially thoughtful environmental behaviors.
We will keep you updated with further projects and eco news as it happens.
The Aboyne Lodge Eco Committee!
Amanda Handley (staff) and committee members.
