Congratulations to our Eco team at Hill Croft for all the hard work you have put into achieving our Green Flag status. The internationally recognised Green Flag is this highest award given to Eco-Schools and symbolises excellence in the field of environmental activity.

Hill Croft have developed an Eco code within the school which we endeavour to follow each day. Recycling is our strongest eco area within school life. We recycle plastic bottles, food waste, paper, cardboard, batteries, aluminium cans and clothes as well as reusing junk materials in our play and art activities. Hill Croft pupils and staff have also been sourcing ways in which we can reduce our energy usage in the school. We have introduced ‘Power down’ initiatives and we are starting to see some improvement with our energy footprint.

We look forward to engaging in future initiatives within the school. Watch this space.

Classes coloured in reduce, reuse, recycle sheets, used ‘pretend candles’ to make pictures representing something related to earth hour –a lightbulb and a house. Some made trees from recycled paper and took their PE lessons outside! We hope you joined in with Earth Hour at home!
