Catcote Academy are working hard to become an Eco School and are really pleased to inform you that we have already achieved our bronze award and are well on our way to achieve silver. We have created our very first Eco Committee. They have worked extremely hard to create an action plan focusing on litter around the school grounds and the local community.
In order to become an Eco School and receive our green flag award, the academy hosted a ‘Trashion Show’ which was part of the work towards gaining Eco School status.
Another area currently underway is building raised flower beds to grow fruit and vegetables in our greenhouse area. This will enable all students to get their hands dirty!!
The Academy now has plastic carrier bag dispensers fitted near its exits. Students are keen to promote the re-use of the bags, encouraging people to place clean used bags in them for others to use. The academy has also taken part in the switch off fortnight to promote saving energy in the school.
Along with all the excellent work that staff and students have already contributed to achieve the green flag award, Mr Pounder and his students have also gained a Bronze and Silver award from the Woodland Trust’s ‘Green Tree Schools Award Scheme’.
Well done to all involved in such a fantastic cause.
