Our Vision for a Sustainable School
Sustainability is essential to ensure a good quality of life for everyone without causing irreversible damage to the planet for future generations. This requires careful balancing of life style, social equity and care for the environment.
The whole school community at Booker Avenue Infants are becoming increasingly aware of their responsibility to promote and practise sustainable development. As a school we have a special role to play in securing the future for young people; as a place of learning we can help pupils understand our impact on the planet and through 'leading by example' are well placed to demonstrate sustainable living and working to pupils and the wider community alike.
At Booker Avenue Infants School we are keen to work towards improving our positive effects on the environment and reducing our adverse effects.
Our Eco Warriors meet each week and look at different aspects of sustainability. We have created our pledge, provided every single room in the school with a green bin to encourage everyone to recycle, created signs to remind everyone to switch off lights and we have many more initiatives over the coming months.
On Thursday 23rd February KS1 were visited by Ruth Suddaby from United Utilities. We learned so many interesting facts about where we get our water from, where our dirty water goes to and how much water we use in a day.
Do you know that if you turn the tap off while you brush your teeth it can use up to 1 litre of water but if you leave the tap running it can use up to 12 litres of water! We found out that a 4 minute shower can use up to 30 litres of water (depending on the type of shower) and a full bath can use 80 litres of water, that's a lot of water!
We all now know how precious clean water is and how lucky we are to have it. With this in mind, we have thought carefully about how we can save water and made promises that we can put into action at home.
As part of the King's Coronation, the Eco Club created a Coronation Garden. We planted a variety of flowers which look beautiful and we have already noticed a broad range of different insects investigating this new space.
To encourage more wildlife into our playgrounds, the Eco Club have installed two new bug hotels. We are really looking forward to seeing which guests choose to stay there!
