Welcome to Mount Stewart Junior School's Eco Warrior Webpage. This page will tell you about our brand-new Eco Warriors and some of the work we are doing. We have just recently appointed our first ever Eco Warriors who are now working hard to encourage the rest of the school to become more eco-friendly. By doing this we aim to be recognised for our work and be accredited with the Eco-Schools Green Flag.
Why do we have Eco Warriors?
Being an Eco Warrior is an ideal opportunity for our pupils to get more involved in the way our school is run and help us to be more environmentally friendly. It provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made. Eco Warriors take on the responsibility of expressing their own views, but also the views of their peers as well as passing on information from eco meetings. As an Eco Warrior, pupils have the opportunity to develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation.
What do our Eco Warriors do?
Our Eco Warriors help to care for our school environment: they help others to follow our eco-code, monitor our energy use in the school and encourage teachers and children to recycle. Eco Warriors will take part in discussions and votes and feedback any relevant information to their class. Members will meet regularly as a group to discuss and implement their ideas.
