Our 'eco-council' help promote looking after the world we live in as well as making the most of our school grounds. Here are just some of the activities we do in school:
The Eco Team - 2023 - 2024
Plastic free pledge
Here at Simonstone we are committed to being as plastic free as we can! So far we have introduced refillable water bottles, refillable glue sticks and pens and we have created outdoor benches made from recycled plastic!
Let's free where we live from single-use, one plastic bottle at a time!
We are supporting READSTONE ENVIRONMENTAL GROUP with this community project.
Collaboration with Ribblesdale High School! Well done to our 'litter' poster winners! Here they are receiving their prize from the Eco team at Ribblesdale! #inspiration
