Anderton St Joseph's Eco page
Anderton St Joseph's school is dedicated to helping care for our environment. We are aiming to achieve Green Flag Eco Schools status. We were awarded the bronze award in 2009 and we gained the silver award in 2010.
At St Joseph's each and every child is very aware of the need to recycle. The school has recyling points for paper, card board, plastic and metal. We also compost all our vegetable waste.
All KS2 recently went to visit the Global Renewables site in Farrington Leyland. They learnt a lot about recycling and sustainability. Class 4 won a certificate for the being one of the lowest zero waste lunch classes!
The Year 1 class at St Joseph's reared a clutch of chicks in spring 2012. We kept two of the hens until they began laying eggs. The whole school was involved in looking after the hens. Each class was on a monthly rota to feed, water and clean out the hens daily.The eco-reps co-ordinated the care of the chickens.The hens have now retired to a local farm were they are free to roam! The whole experience was very worthwhlle. The reception paticularly enjoyed collecting the eggs and making cakes with them in class!
