Eco Club

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. 


Congratulations!

 

Congratulations to The Discovery School for winning two awards!  

 

 

 

The first was from South, South East in Bloom.  When a judicial panel visited Kings Hill in July they were so impressed with our contribution to decorating Liberty Square as well as the hard work that the pupils have put into growing a variety crops in the allotment that they awarded The Discovery School a Gold Medal!  

 

 

 

The second award marks the amazing work and enthusiasm of the Eco-Club in continuing their environmental journey and that is the Eco-School Bronze Award! 

 

 

An amazing effort for all involved. Keep up the good work and thank you for your continued support.

Eco-Tip

 

How to save electricity around the home…

  • Switch off appliances at the wall when not in use rather than use standby.
  • Shower instead of bath. It takes more energy to heat a bath full of water.
  • Take a shorter time in the shower.  Ideally less than 4 minutes.
  • Only fill the kettle with the water you need.
  • If possible fit a smart meter.

Remember this motto...

Don't standby....switch off!
