Highfield Eco Council
Our Eco Council here at Highfield is still going strong and is organised by Mrs Connelly and a group of enthusiastic Yr 5/6 children. The aim of the council is to interest and involve children in their outside environment, giving them some ownership around thinking about how to improve and utilise it, along with gardening skills. In our school grounds each class already has it's own garden plot in which to grow vegetables and flowers throughout the year.
The new Eco Council's first job was to find out what individual classes would like to grow in their allocated garden plots. Along with Mrs Connelly and our volunteer expert Frank, the children have been busy preparing beds and planting early seeds.
