Well done to everyone who returned their starlight bag last week. We managed to return a whopping 414kgs of clothing, which is fantastic. The winning class was y2B who brought in 19 bags alone! A huge thank you to everyone who supported us… We will be back in touch to tell you about y2B’s treat!

You will all be soon receiving your ‘Starlight Bags’. Remember to fill them up with unwanted clothing, shoes, bags and bed linen and return them to school by 20th March! Dont forget the more bags we receive the more money we will be able to donate to the starlight charity to help the poorly children!

Also, the class who returns the most amount of bags will receive an Eco Treat…. I wonder who it will be this time!

We are a Fair Trade School!

A massive well done to all the children in phase 3 for their fantastic work about Fairtrade. They have used all the work they did as evidence to help our school achieve the first Fairtrade school award called ‘Fair Aware’! They have made us all very proud and will now be able to teach the rest of the school all about what they learned.

Well done phase 3!

The Eco committee did us all proud yesterday as they gave another whole school assembly to inform everyone of all the hard work we have done this term to support us along our Eco schools journey.

Year 3 and 4 have been learning all about ‘Fair Trade’ including what fair trade means and how we can support it. The year 3s have been hunting in the supermarkets for food items that hold the fair trade mark and the year 4s gave us all a brilliant assembly to inform us about Fair Trade food and fashion! This is all the work we have done to support us in applying to be a ‘Fair Trade School’!

Well done everyone!

Today we have spoken about our up-coming eco assembly and what we are going to speak about to you. It is on the 11th of February 2015, so keep an eye out for us.

On the 20th of April we will be holding an eco week and our focus will be saving water and energy.

Soon we will also be going for our first fairtrade school award.

Our use of gas has reduced by 33% and our use of electricity as reduced by 4%. What an achievement!!!

Welcome back to all of the HGCP ECO WARRIORS! We have achieved so much this year already for eco as we prepare ourselves to apply for the green flag award for the second time in April.

This term, the eco committee will be making sure that our school continue to work together to help reduce the amount of energy we use in school. The eco committee has some ideas up their sleeves to help move the school forward and become more environmentally friendly, so I think they have a hard task ahead of them to persuade Mrs Adams to let us make our ideas a reality!

The eco committee will keep you all posted of our success with this! Im sure they will cope with this task… my Eco Warriors can be very persuasive!

Keep up the good work everyone – HGCP are a fantastic team!

Mrs Laithwaite
