Green Schools Website Update

  • We have been very busy here in St. Luke’s working on earning our Flag for Water. As well as maintaining our previous Green Flags, we are looking at raising awareness of water usage and what we can do at home and at school to improve this.
  • Here are a few things that we have been working on throughout the past year, which we also discussed at our most recent Green Schools meeting;
  • Glimmermen: ensuring each class has a Glimmerman who keeps lights and classroom appliances off when people are not present in the room.
  • Water meters – with the help of our caretaker Liam, we have been tracking our water usage over one week by reading the water metre.
  • Water Day – we plan to have a Water Awareness day where we will wear blue and carry out some water sport activities.
  • Red Dye Experiment – we used red dye to track the pathway of water in our cisterns.
  • Water Butts – Liam, our caretaker, will be assisting us here by using this water for maintaining our school grounds and garden.
  • We are planning to have Guest speakers visit St. Luke’s during assembly to talk about water awareness. We are also learning our Water Rap which we will perform at this assembly.
  • After our visit to the Water Exhibition at Vienna Woods, we discovered great ideas to help us gain our Water Flag, these included using Hippo Bags in our toilets to reduce water usage.
  • We are continuing to have our No Wrapper Day every Thursday.
  • Photo competition – we will be running a photo competition to raise awarenessof where and how we use water at home and in school.
