Eco School

At South Bersted CE Primary School the aim of our children’s Eco Committee is to encourage everyone within the school community to become environmentally aware. We are always on the lookout for ways of making sure that our school is eco-friendly. We hold half-termly meetings where we discuss projects for the coming months, such as recycling, litter picking, as well as planting areas in the school grounds and ensuring we all make good use of the wildlife area at the end of the school field.

Mrs. Chris Porter from Wastebusting at Ford came to school to present the ECO committee members with their badges.

Representatives from Glynn Jones Estate Agents came to our Collective Worship to present the school with a voucher for £250 for growing the tallest sunflower, in a competition run by Glynn Jones Estate Agents. South Bersted School came first, with a sunflower which was 231cm tall.
