St Vincent’s eco school. Created by the Eco Committee. Introduction. This presentation is a evaluation of last year’s and this year’s events and actions involving eco. We have been working very hard on trying to gain our green flag and become an eco school. We hope you enjoy our presentation.

We hope you enjoy our presentation.
We have photographs of before we had the spring clean and after we had finished. Room 5 made a video of what they found. We also displayed the litter at assembly and it had a huge impact on the amount of waste in the yard. We had about 300 pieces of litter a week to only about 70 and progressively going down to only about 20. We also have the litter monitors watch the yard at break and lunch.
We have graphs around the school of our litter in a week when primary three monitored how much litter we generated. They then showed litter to assembly after 5 days of monitoring the litter. The litter generated decreased from the 80-90 area to 30-45 pieces of litter a day. We hope to have a pristine yard with no litter on it at all in the future.
We have water catchers to collect rainwater and use it instead of water from the tap. Unfortunately we cannot get access to our water readings but we have low-flow taps in all of the bathrooms and auto-flushes in the urinals.
Eco day is another event that shows our input to becoming an Eco School. We had events like making buntings, an eco quiz, we planted a tree outside the office and we went on a nature trail. The RSPB came in to give an assembly, Room 7 went out into a litter walk around our community
