Our Eco Club
Hi, we are the Arnside National C of E School, Eco Club. We meet fortnightly on Thursdays after school, to discuss environmental issues and action we can take in school to help the environment. The club members are very enthusiastic and motivated to raise awareness in our school, of the impact of climate change, in our world!
This year we have 7 children from KS2 in our club.
Hi, I’m Millie. I have been in the Eco Club for three years. I wanted to join the Eco Club so I could help make the school a little eco-friendlier. I want to make sure we have a water butt in the nature garden and make sure we have more wildlife around the playground. I would like to put some planter boxes in the infant quiet area.
Hi, I’m Eva. I have been in the Eco Club for one year. I wanted to join the Eco Club so I could make a change to our planet. I want to improve our nature garden and make a new pond. I want to make sure we have more plants in our playground.
Hi, I’m Amelia. I have been in the Eco Club for one year. I wanted to join the Eco Club so I could make changes in school and I want to become eco-friendlier. I want to plant more trees and add more wildlife for our planet. I want to encourage our school to use alternative water bottles to plastic, e.g. metal bottles.
Hi, I’m Hannah. I have been in the Eco Club for one year. I wanted to join the Eco Club because I like nature and I want to protect it, not harm it. I want to be more with nature and plant more wildlife around our school.
Hi, I am Adam. I’ve been in the Eco Club for one year. I wanted to join the Eco Club because I am really interested in nature and I want to learn more about it. I don’t want the world to be destroyed by humans who haven’t been here as long as some animals, yet we are still destroying the world. I would like us to go on school trips to plant many more trees, like maybe 100!
Hi, I’m Alfred. I have been in the Eco Club for one year. I wanted to join the Eco Club because I think that nature is very important to our world and if we destroyed all of the nature we would have zero food because all of the animals would die because they don’t have their natural habitat. Even if you were vegan you wouldn’t have that much food because there is only a limited amount of plants left from our destruction. I want to get closer to nature. I would like to plant seed bombs in our nature garden at school to encourage pollinators such as butterflies and bees.
Hi, I’m Isobel. I have been in the Eco Club for one year. I wanted to join because I love animals and nature. I feel really affected by climate change so I want to grow more wild flowers to help the planet and grow more plants in the nature garden at our school. I love bugs and animals so I wanted to stop plastic and pollution because I don’t want them to die.
We are currently making plans to improve our school nature garden so that classes can continue to use this area for taking learning outside.
We try to regularly visit Beachwood to check on our rewilding projects. We enjoy walking there and back, discussing our local area.
Every year we try to promote a waste free world by hosting regular clothing swap shops. We host uniform swap shops and book day costume swap shops.
Last year we hosted a visitor, Pushpanath Krishnamurthy, who came to talk to us about Fair Trade and Climate Justice. He walks for climate justice.
During COP26, we created a 'Tree of Promises'. Last year we have added more planet promises to our tree. The children of Arnside National CofE School are all trying to do their bit to help combat climate change.
