Spring Term 2020-2021
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.
The 2020-21 pupil-led Eco committee has been elected (or is continuing) as follows:
Y1 – Isla & Harri
Y2 – Minuki & George
Y3 – Iris & Will
Y4 – Jocelyn & Ben
Y5 – Lotta & Joel
Y6 – Eddie & Jonty
Although we haven’t been able to meet in person yet this year, the class reps have been busy talking with their class about how we can make a ‘greener’ Christmas. We pooled everyone’s ideas and created a newsletter to send home to families with suggestions and ideas. Please look under the ‘Newsletters’ tab to find a copy.
In the temporary building, we have made sure that all classes are continuing to practise sustainable behaviours, such as not wasting but reusing and recycling paper, and placing fruit and vegetable snack waste in special bins for recycling into compost. (image)
In the run-up to our move back into the main school building next year, we will want to focus our attention on the facilities and processes that will be put in place around the school, to make our new environment as sustainable as possible. We will also want to think about how to help regenerate our outside areas. So all in all, we have a busy time ahead!
We will keep you updated with further projects and eco news as it happens.
The Aboyne Lodge Eco Committee!
