2008 ECO mascot

Congratulations go to Rachel in P5 who was the overall winner of the Eco competition to design a mascot for this year’s campaign to save water.

We received lots of entries and it was very difficult for the ECO reps to choose a winner.

Rachel’s mascot is proudly displayed in school at the noticeboard at the front of the school.

Rachel won her very own water saving device for toilets called a water hippo and appropriately enough her friends helped her name the mascot Waterloo!

The Eco reps have been busy installing water hippos in some of our older style school toilets. We will let you know how much water we are saving.

The winning design

What do you think of Waterloo?

Eco update

The Eco reps have been busy. First of all look around in the school grounds and see if you can spot the new bird box that James put up! Lachlan and the whole team have begun reading our water meter to see how much water we save. We are looking for a new Eco mascot with a water theme this year and await the competition entries from all you creative pupils. Just a quick reminder then to everyone- when you are checking that all lights are switched off when we don’t need them – how about checking that the water taps are properly off too?

ECO News

The new ECO reps have been busy carrying out an audit to identify this session’s focus.  After much discussion it was decided to concentrate on water.  The new reps are Eilidh, Lachlan, Rachel, Elis, James and Morgan.  Keeping the display up to date is a major part of their remit.  I think the waterfall is fantastic.  What do you think?

Clean Up the World Weekend

A litter free Pencaitland

Calum and Lewis, the P7 Class Reps, realised it was Clean Up the World Weekend and asked the Eco Reps to organize an event. We got together a group of P2’s,a P3/4,a P4,P5’s,P6’s and P7,Eco and class reps and did a litter pick up around the area. Two teachers came with us, Mrs McBean(deputy head) and Ms Donaldson(playground superviser). We found lots of litter and Pencaitland is now a much tidier, litter free, zone.
