Welcome to the Discovery School Eco-Club. We meet every Thursday after school and together we learn how to help the environment and to make it a better place.
The Eco-Club is linked to the nationwide scheme Eco-Schools. Our main aim is to get the green flag and to be recognised as an Eco-School. There are nine different topics which we need to focus on. These are; litter, waste, energy, water, biodiversity, school grounds, transport, global citizenship and healthy living.
The Great Sunflower Race was very close. There was some jostling for first place...one week it was one class, the next week a different class...we also had some impressive sunflowers, one of the flowers had a diameter greater than 30cm!
The prize for the tallest sunflower was an up-cycled sunflower trophy which will be passed on year to year, and a solar powered dancing sunflower for the winning class to keep.
The winners of the Great Sunflower Race are...
3rd place - Edison Class - 1m 35cm
2nd place - Goodall Class - 1m 44cm
1st place - Edison Class - 1m 46cm
