At Johnstown Primary School our Eco Councillors understand the important role that they have embarked on.

At our school our Eco Committee decided to allocate areas to each year group. Topic areas are reviewed annually by the committee. Currently:

||Transport Global Citizenship
The benefits to the pupils learning are significant. We know everyone has a unique learning, working and thinking style and the diversity of tasks that are undertaken recognises this. The practical ‘real-life’ activities and experimental learning in the outside classroom help develop thinking and enable pupils to make connections between subjects. These are fundamentally important key skills in a 21st century school.
Support is crucial for the success of outdoor learning.
The Eco School programme is a long term activity with the Green Flag Award being re-assessed and renewed every two years. (www.eco-schoolswales.org). Our next award will be the Platinum Gold Award.
