Walk to school poster competition

The Eco Committee set the whole school a challenge - to design a poster to promote 'walk to school week'

They were to try to include strong graphics and a message about the benefits (personal, community and environmental). The committee looked at all the posters in 'Learning 2 Lead' and selected their favourites from all the designs and put them into three catagories: Gold Silver and Bronze. The winners and their entries were as follows:

Gold: Year 1 - Oskar. Year 2 - Arla. Year 3 - Jenna. Year 4 - (unnamed) Year 5 - Taiba and Maryam

Walk to school poster - Gold






Silver: Year 1 - Carlota. Year 2 - Anastasia. Year 3 - Lucia. Year 4 - Hassan & Eleanor Year 5 - Arya

Walk to school poster - Silver






Bronze: Year 1 - Daisy. Year 2 - Runa. Year 3 - Muniba. Year 4 - (unnamed) Year 5 - (unnamed)

Walk to school - Bronze





Exciting news!  We have a full Eco Committee, with children from each class across the school participating:

Year 1 - Ever

Year 2 - Edward and Violet

Year 3 - Lilyana and Yujiro

Year 4 - Haarun and Malek

Year 5 - Mia Kai and Ollie

Year 6 - Taylah Sophia and Joshua

A major development at the school which has financial and green ramifications is the installation of solar panels. The intention is to be selling electricity to the national grid rather than buying it from them.

Christoffer: "The solar panels in the school help provide it with energy without using any fossil fuels. The panels absorb energy from the sunbeams which are converted into electricity."

Eco committee reviews and reports

The Eco-Committee have fulfilled their first 3 orders from their online second hand uniform shop.  Running this online business is such an incredible opportunity for the children, helping them to develop range of real-life skills including building financial literacy – all whilst supporting recycling.  I would definitely encourage you to have a look at the Eco-Committee’s online marketplace and take on board their message of “Relove your stuff!”  The online shop can be found by heading to https://app.uniformd.co.uk/items/40  .  The online shop forms part of the Eco-Committee’s strategy and action plan in working towards the internationally recognised Green Flag Award – I know you will be keen to support the children, especially as all funds raised are targeted towards improving the school playground.


As young entrepreneurs, we have the following aims:

  • To help families by recycling good quality uniform items at competitive prices
  • To reduce the amount of clothing ending up in landfill
  • To raise funds to improve our school
  • To help families by keeping homes clutter free of outgrown items
  • To learn about money and running a business
  • To engage children in school development

We need your help to make our business a success.

If you have any uniform lying around at home that is:

  • unused
  • spare
  • too small or too big

Please donate it to the Eco-Committee.  This will help us to get our business up and running.

Hidayah. "in eco-committee we take clothes from the lost property and we wash them then we sell them. We also help to fold the clothes and put them on the stand. We sell them after school for very cheap prices."

Your child should bring in any uniform items that you wish to donate on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  They can give them to their class teacher, ready for the Eco-Committee to collect.

Let’s share the re-love!

Thank you for your help
