Eco-Warriors

They pass this way only once, so we should aim to litter their pathways with quality experiences...

School Council

At Hodnet school we follow the principles of democracy to appoint School Council members from each class to form a committee who meet termly to ensure the voice of the children are recognised and acted upon. The children meet with staff members including our senior leaders and share their opinions and make decisions about key items within school. Mrs Lyall and Miss Darmanin lead the School Council. 

This year the school council will be working on:

  • Improving the school libraries and helping with the organisation of moving the KS2 Library into the Learning Room. 
  • Helping to design our new playground markings.
  • Organising the playtime ‘buddy’ system.

 

Eco-Warriors

At Hodnet school we follow the principles of democracy to appoint Eco-Warrior team members from each class to form a committee who meet termly to ensure the voice of the children are heard loud and clear when it comes to climate change and supporting our environment. The children meet with staff members including our senior leaders and share their opinions and make decisions about key items within school. Mrs Huxtable leads the Eco-Warrior team. 

The Eco-Warrior team have been successful in achieving their Bronze and Silver level National Eco awards. 

This year the Eco-Warriors will be working on:

  • Supporting COP26 and its outcomes.
  • Participating in Connecting Classrooms led by the British Council*
  • Keeping up the good work to rejuvenate our outdoor space and make sure it is well used.
  • Planting trees as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations 
 
Connecting classrooms – this is a British Council led initiative which we are proud to be a part of, we are linked to a school in Palestine and we communicate with them half termly. We discuss a range of topics and interests, including how climate change is affecting them and how this compares to us.
