Eco-Committee

CKIS are proud to be an Eco School!  

We achieved our first Green Flag in March 2008 and are very proud of our environmentally friendly and sustainable school. However, we are always striving to look at ways to make our school community even more environmentally friendly.

Eco committee's codeWe participate in the Eco Schools programme which provides ideal means for fostering environmental awareness in the entire school in a way that links to many curriculum subjects. The primary aim of the Eco-Schools programme is to educate and empower young people to make positive decisions and become change makers for an environmentally sustainable world.

We enjoy working on the ten Eco Schools topics; Biodiversity, Climate Change, Energy, Global Perspectives, Healthy Living, Litter, Waste, Water, Transport and Outdoor Learning. Each year we choose 5 focus topics, identified by undertaking an Environmental Review and create an Action Plan to show how we will develop our selected areas within school.  

Keep an eye on this page to find out what we have chosen this year!  

Meet the members of our eco-committee for this year.

Pictures of our eco-committee will be here soon.
