Eco Committee


Welcome to the homepage for Gaer Primary School Eco Committee!


      Our School Eco Committee is chosen by the pupils themselves.

Each year new representatives are chosen. Representatives from each class in the school are elected by their peers to voice their ideas and opinions. Eco is held every Thursday after school 3.20-4.15 with Miss Sansom. 

Within the Eco Committee roles include: Chair Person, Vice-Chair and Secretary.

The Eco Committee meet weekly and feedback information to their teacher and class. These enthusiastic individuals are responsible for a whole range of green issues but we are focusing specifically on:

  • Energy
  • Recycling
  • Litter
  • Healthy Living
  • Raising Eco Awareness



This is our current Action Plan:
