We have a very enthusiastic Eco- committee and we have been successfully awarded our 3rd green flag.
The eco-committee ensures that Ysgol Heol Goffa is environmentally friendly.
Eco School Good News.
Bethan the assessor from Eco School Wales came to visit on March 20th 2019.
Bethan looked at our Eco-school files and displays. We also gave her a tour of our school and told her about all the work we are doing. She was very happy to see what was going on in school. One of our recent projects is to recycle crisp packets, Bethan suggested that we ask other people living nearby to bring the crisp packets into school for us to recycle them.
Bethan decided that she was very happy for us to still have our platinum flag for the school. She gave us a new flag as ours had got old and tatty. Big Well Done everyone for such a great effort.
Eco– Schools Committee
The Eco– committee have been working very hard towards achieving their platinum flag . The assessor visited the school and was very pleased with all the hard work she saw going on. The final assessment took place on April 4th, and we have now heard we were successful and are now Platinum Award Winners!
We are delighted that one of the governing body Mr Hill has become a member of our committee and he regularly attends the meetings.
This year our targets include making links with a school abroad, encouraging healthy eating and to drink more water using our bottles from the PSA at Christmas time.
We are also pleased to announce our mud kitchen is complete and lots of pupils have enjoyed being creative here.
We look after the wildlife in our garden with Dosbarth Dinefwr making homes for the hedgehogs and Dosbarth Carew feeding the birds. Our gardening club has started back up now the weather is getting better., we look forward to growing vegetables to sell soon.
Please keep saving your old clothes as we are planning a Rags to Riches collection soon.
