Global Ambassadors

Global Ambassadors’ role in school is to raise awareness of global and environmental issues. They are passionate about taking care of animals and our area around school, which can be seen in their work on the bug hotel. They lead projects such as Switch Off Fortnight and initiatives to do with the Green Flag Award. They are guardians of the allotment and highlight issues regarding ethnicity and equality when appropriate.

Allotment Wormery

We sent off for some worms from the Yorkshire Worms and they arrived the next day, so the Global Ambassadors sprang into action and created a snug home for them in our wormery, which was kindly donated by our local gardening group.

 

Alfie’s Fruit Stall

Alfie, one of our Global Ambassadors, wanted to make sure that we used less packaging at break time. He also wanted KS2 children to have the same opportunity to have fruit at break time, so he spoke to the Global Ambassador’s and the Bursar and Headteacher to arrange this idea. He also did a survey to find out if KS2 would like this and what kind of fruit they would like. Well done Alfie for such a super contribution to our school.

Litter Pick

The Global Ambassadors arranged to get litter pickers and we had our first litter pick today. Two Global Ambassadors went to the KS1 playground and two to the KS2 playground. They invited other children to help them and collected a surprising amount of litter.

New Eco-code Design

All the children in school voted and decided that Phoebe’s design was the one that they would like to see in their classrooms. Well done Phoebe! Click on the link below to see our Eco-code.
