Student Eco-Council Launches At HGA

Student representatives from all year groups have come together this year to form the Harris Garrard Academy Eco-Council. Priority actions for the students include:

  • reducing waste by promoting recycling at home and in school
  • asking students to use reusable water bottles and selling them at the canteen to raise funds
  • and reducing food waste in the canteen and composting food waste for the new kitchen garden.

Picture17Students are also planning a sustainable transport campaign to ask students to walk, cycle or scoot to school, and for other journeys in the community.

"I joined and donated to the Eco-Council because I have been interested in the environment since Year 6 when my friend introduced me to the importance of trees to people," said Michael, Year 7.

Tyreese said he joined the HGA Eco-Council because he wants the opportunity to help our planet in any way he can. "So many people turn a blind eye to what is happening to our world," he said. "Also, I got to see the Mayor [of London] which was very exciting. It is nice to be a part of something that wants to make a difference to our eco-footprint."

HGA1Lydia, Year 12 (pictured), says many believe they are too young to make an impact on the devastating changes happening on our earth. "The eco council is here to prove that mindset wrong," she said. "We are a large group of young people that contribute their ideas to save the earth from the horrible effects of littering and global warming. Even just litter picking once a week has made me feel as though I am one step closer to helping mother nature reach its full potential once again."

Bexley Eco-Fest

The Eco-Council will also represent HGA at the Bexley Eco-Fest on Saturday 25 June. Students will be present to talk about the importance of protecting our environment and the value of clean green spaces and waterways.

Activities for visitors will include colouring and litter picking. The litter picking is supported by the HGA Eco-Council’s new Litter Picking Club. Student Michael has contributed his Jack Petchey award to the purchase of 30 new litter pickers.
