Turing House is working towards becoming an Eco School. In order for us to achieve this award we will be working closely with members of the school community to make a number of small changes, which we hope will have a big impact!
Saturday 8th October saw the transformation of the garden surrounding the playground. We started off the day with a very overgrown garden, filled with tree roots and ineffective weed membrane. By the end it was all gone and we are now left with a blank canvas ready for its new plants.
It is well on its way to becoming the Turing House Jurassic Garden!
A big thank you must go to all of the parents, governors, members of Turing House Friends and staff who gave up their precious Saturday morning to help us achieve this. Refreshments were provided by THF and went down an absolute treat.
What is the Eco Award?
The Eco Award is designed to allow us to; enhance the school curriculum, developing our links with the wider community and improving our school.
- School grounds
- Healthy living
- Global citizenship
Of the nine topics, the eco-committee have to select the topics of focus. The school isn’t required to work on all of the topics at once. However, whilst working on one topic we may find that we are able to make improvements in other areas, as they are designed to interlink.
Energy is the only compulsory topic – tackling this topic is an excellent way to both reduce our school’s emissions and to save money through reduced energy bills.
