Solway Primary School has a Green Team which consists of students who have a passion and drive for Sustainability. The team is made up of one representative from each class in levels 3-6, as well as some additional Year 6 leaders.
Our Green Team set yearly goals within 5 key areas including Biodiversity, Energy, Waste, Water and Curriculum.
Some achievements we have made over the years have been:
Led by the Year 6 Green Team Captains, the Green Team are responsible for many aspects of Sustainability at Solway, including school newsletter articles, assembly presentations, classroom demonstrations and helping to manage and measure our different waste streams.
Our Green Team attend weekly meetings where students create action plans for goals they want to achieve for sustainability throughout the year. They also catch up on any recent sustainability events on our sustainability calendar and promote these events to their classmates.
