Crawforddyke ECO Committee

Our Story

We are very proud to have been awarded 4 Green Flags and permanent Eco status. ECO practices are now firmly embedded in our school ethos and it is the ECO Committee's responsibility to ensure we continue this.

Whilst working towards permanent ECO status each class discussed and worked on issues involving: Litter, Waste, Energy, Water, Health and Wellbeing, Transport and Improving our School Grounds. During this period of time, Primary 5 children completed a project working with the Clyde River Authorities called "Clyde in the Classroom". During the course of their study they have learned about the water table and how Jocks Burn feeds into the river Clyde. They also researched the wild life including fish found within the burn.

 

Current News

The present Eco Committee includes class representatives from Primary 2 – Primary 7 who have regular meetings with Miss Young. We work closely with Mrs Wilson and some children from the Nursery and hope to do some planting with them in the summer term.

 

Empties Please

cashforcartridgesWe have come across a great new and easy way to raise funds for our school through recycling used ink cartridges.

We're working with a company called 'Empties Please'. they will collect and recycle used ink cartridges from Crawforddyke and donate the money they raise straight back to the school!

It's very simple. All you have to do is collect used ink cartridges in a bag provided or even as small sandwich bag and put them in our recylce bin - upstairs in the library. Once the bin is full the company will empty it and send the money straight back to the school!
