Colebrook School Environmental Group and Eco Schools

Here at long last is a very overdue update to all Colebrook School?s environmental endeavours.

Our greatest achievement of last year was to receive our Bronze Eco Schools Award; and we are now working towards our Silver.

On a less happy note, the huge effort that was made by children and staff to continue the beech hedge has been destroyed by a mixture of drought and vandalism; a few hardy plants survive and we have plans to try again. The hazel trees all seem to be doing well, and the large sack-full of daffodil bulbs that were planted have started to emerge.

The butterfly garden was very successful and displayed some fantastic sunflowers. It is hoped that we can do the same this year with the children sewing and raising the plants themselves.

We now have two compost bins on the patio in the hope that the compost we create will help to enrich the rather poor clay soil that surrounds the school.

Within the school, each classroom has a special bin to collect paper which is sent for re-cycling.

The school grounds are now a much cleaner place with three new rubbish bins and our dedicated squads of children who tirelessly pick litter in their break times with our new litter picking tools and rubber gloves.

During the Autumn Term the flower beds were tidied and mulched with wood-chip to help improve the soil and keep the weeds down. This is an on-going process, weather permitting.

The patio planters were removed as they were felt to be unsafe, and herbs have been newly planted in their place. The vandals have also had a go at these, but most of them have survived and our doing well.

The main focus of the Echo Schools Committee last term was to try and attract more birds to the school site. The Environment Group has spent many a Friday lunch-time making bird feeders and nest boxes which hopefully will be in place soon.

A huge number of children at Colebrook have been involved in these projects and are very keen to make their school a place to be proud of. Please help them by being vigilant and reporting any vandalism.
