Eco Club


Eco Club


The Eco committee meets each Tuesday afternoon and display issues and events on the Eco Schools’ noticeboard. 

The ten topics for Eco-Schools in Northern Ireland are: Litter; Waste; Healthy Living; School grounds; Water; Transport; Biodiversity; Energy; Global Perspective and Climate Change but not all of these have to be covered each year.



The litter topic aims to raise awareness of the impact of litter on our environment. We continue to work towards having a litter free school and the problem of litter in school grounds continues to improve. 



Each class continues to use their class recycle bins. We also encourage pupils to have healthy breaks especially fresh fruit as all the waste is recycled. Pupils take responsibility for the recycle bins and collecting fruit waste. 

Some classes were given the opportunity to visit the Arc21 bus. The education officer helps pupils to learn about why they need to recycle in school and at home.



Members of the Eco committee designed energy saving posters and placed these around school to remind everyone to turn off lights and electrical appliances went not in use.

Biodiversity Garden Project

We are currently taking part in a Biodiversity Garden Project sponsored by Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful and Radius Housing. We will be working closely with our partner school St Comgall's to create an eco friendly garden on our school grounds. 

P7 Room 12 took part in a Zoom call which discussed the plans for the project as well as teaching us about the importance of biodiversity and caring for the ecosystem.


We will add updates to this page as the project progresses.

Litter Workshop

Biodiversity Harvest Workshop and Shared Education Litter Pick

Thanks to Eco Schools and Radius Housing for hosting a Harvest Workshop. We were joined by pupils from St. Comgall’s, who also have a biodiversity garden. The children enjoyed a workshop focused on local fruits before completing a pruning session in the garden, preparing the plants for winter. The children also completed a litter pick of the local area.
