Welcome to our Eco page
At Great Malvern Primary we have a very active Eco Committee and Eco club. Each class elects a representative to stand on the committee each year and they decide the projects we undertake in our Action plan.
We currently have 28 children from year 2 to year 6 attending Eco club every Monday in our after school club. The term we have been busy making something exciting from ... newspapers! We framed natural pictures, created origami creatures, created newspaper art and finally made paper carrier bags. Great fun! We have also visited Forest school twice. The children loved making a 'woodland creature' out of clay and natural materials found in the forest. We had snails and squirrels, hedgehogs with twigs as spikes. What a creative bunch we have!
Christmas Card collection - January 2017
In school we have asked children if they could bring in their Christmas cards and the children have not disappointed us. We have bags full of Christmas cards ready to give to a company who will plant Christmas trees. This is because the cards are made out of paper, paper is made from trees, so the company will plant some more Christmas trees so next year we will have more Christmas trees and more Christmas cards. So if you have any spare Christmas cards could you please get your children/child to bring them in to the school office or in to their class before the end of January.

The Eco committee, Eco club and School council are taking part in a nationwide campaign to 'Keep Britain Tidy.' We will be out and about with litter pickers and bin bags to clean up the streets and parks around the school. This is a community project associated with Fortis Living. Watch out for a poster competition linked with this event. You will hear all about the event in assembly on Wednesday 9th March.
Thank you so much for you donations for the refugees in desperate need in Dunkirk. We collected a car full of warm clothing and toys for children. These were delivered to a sorting depot where they were later delivered to those in need. We will have a special visitor into school soon to let you know how your generous gifts will have been put to good use.
We have been recycling Christmas cards for the Woodland Trust during January. We have managed to fill the boot of a car so far with cards. You have one week left if you wish to recycle your cards this way.
This week Eco Committee are collecting any children's clothes, small toys, unwanted hats and gloves, to send to Dunkirk Refugee Camp. Please send any donations to school during the week. Thank you.
Our Eco Club meet every Monday after school where about 20 children enjoy different activities each week. From litter picking to planting bulbs, making 'Boxtrolls' and up- cycling boots. Got a good idea...let Mrs Thomson or Mrs Dudman know. The possibilities are endless!
