Welcome to our Eco-Council's Webpage!
Who are we?
Hi and welcome to our webpage. We are the Windhill Primary School Eco-Council and exist to help our school and local community do their part for the environment. With representatives from each class, we meet regularly to discuss upcoming events and ways to save the planet.
Mexborough Litter Pick
Today, we did a litter pick around Mexborough and we picked up lots of litter like cans, bottles and wrappers. The litter pick started at 11 o’clock (led by the eco council) and finished at noon. We wanted to do the litter pick because we want to help the environment.

Switch Off Fortnight
Every year, we take part in the national Switch Off Fortnight to help save electricity and spread awareness of energy wastage. As a council, we decided how to celebrate this event as a school.
We set a competition across school to see who could save the most electricity. In teams, we spent the fortnight visiting classrooms and giving out green cards for classrooms who had devices switched off when not in use. Some classes struggled at the start, but by the end they were all doing well.
Each class also looked into electrical energy creation and how it can harm the environment. They designed posters about why we save electricity and how this can be achieved. We also looked at sustainable methods to produce energy.
