ECO meeting Tuesday 22nd May
Mr Burgess welcomed all the reps to the meeting. Mr Burgess explained that although we have entered several competitions this year, we have had no responses from those entries.
Mr Burgess asked what the Global goals were. We recapped several of these including No poverty, zero hunger, quality education and reduced inequalities.
Mr Burgess asked the reps how we look after our bodies and be active. The children confidently explained that we have active schools after school clubs, 2.5 hours of PE each week, balanced diets in school dinners and Health week each year.
Mr Burgess explained that some children don’t have a quality education due to lack of food. Mary’s Meals help over 1 million children each day have a hot meal at school which means they are able to go to school and learn.
Mr Burgess explained that at the beginning of the school year each year stage were asked to study a global goal and produce evidence to support our ECO Green Flag reaccreditation. In two weeks, pupils will be asked to share their learning with their peers in the ECO group either by creating a poster, presenting a short talk or bringing along some evidence of their learning.
Our main concern raised today by the children was the amount of litter that has gathered, mainly on the astro pitch over the past few weeks. Sam thought when the gate was open litter could be blown onto the astro and then gather in the goals. Mr Burgess was concerned that children were dropping litter as they played on the astro. Samuel thought we should have three strikes and you’re out, with people losing points if they dropped litter three times. Other reps thought we should reward people for putting litter in the bin with house points.
Mr Burgess closed the meeting after 11.55am and our next meeting will be in two weeks.
