In Jersey we can offer your eco school a variety of resources and teaching to help you reach your Green Flag status.
Biodiversity and School Grounds -
We can supply you with a variety of animal homes made from recycled pallet boards (made at Jersey Prison). These are great to get the whole school involved with monitoring and watching out for biodiversity in your grounds.
Join our BioBlitz project where we come in and help your pupils survey for invertebrates. Pupils catch, identify, record and release what they find. Once you've had one visit with us you can borrow the equipment to continue surveying and monitoring your school grounds biodiversity.
Recycling, Biodiversity and School Grounds -
Composting is a great way to recycle organic waste from children's lunches. We can advise you on setting up a compost and provide you with information and teaching on what creatures will help break down the food into soil. Making a compost is easier than one may think and it's a school wide project to have on your grounds.
Litter and Biodiversity -
We have an assembly talk on Sea Protectors which explains that litter dropped inland reaches the oceans. The pupils see and hear what creatures are effected by litter and how they can help by becoming sea protectors.
