Eaton Square wins Eco-Schools Silver Award

28th October 2021

As we prepare for the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, what better time to announce that Eaton Square Prep School has achieved official Eco-Schools Silver Award!

From the sustainable design and materials used for our new Nursery spaces, to our pupil-led Eco Committee, this accolade has been awarded in recognition of our commitment to the environment and ongoing eco-endeavours. All of us at Eaton Square are passionate about celebrating, protecting and supporting our environment. Here are just a few of the activities we’ve been up to this term…

  • Pupils brought environmental issues to life with Green Up Your Act – an organization that champions all aspects of sustainability. The children particularly enjoyed making recycled notebooks and bug hotels!
  • Our young environmentalists created outstanding projects for the national Save our Wildlife Schools Arts Competition, including 3D pieces of art representing how we help our wildlife.
  • The entire school embraced a ‘Food Waste Challenge’, complete with a visit from the Sustainability Leader from the award-winning Holroyd Howe to demonstrate the importance of not throwing away food.
  • To celebrate World Habitat Day, Year 3 created a home and shelter for a range of insects which will go into the School garden.

A sincere thanks to all pupils in our Eco Committee who continue to lead the School so admirably in our environmental efforts, particularly with their regular ‘Eco Tip of the Week’. From ‘Take what you eat and eat what you take’ to ‘Turn off your electronics when not in use’, our young eco-ambassadors are doing a sterling job in guiding their fellow pupils.
