Eco Warriors

Welcome to the page of the Eco Warriors! Here you will find all of the information about how we are trying to make St Paul's a little more environmental. 


"I want to be an Eco Warrior because we can make a difference as it is our duty to help my friends and our school to become a better place.' Rebekah 

"It is important to be an Eco Warrior because you have to make our school more eco friendly!" Storm 

"When you are an Eco Warrior, we can help pick up litter and educate people to not drop it! We make the planet more green by planting and watering flowers and tomatoes and lots of other things!" William 


Each class has either one or two, Eco Warrior representatives, elected by their peers in September after they have given a short presentation to show how they will meet the role and responsibilities of being an Eco Warrior. Eco Warriors meet every other week with Mrs Morrison. During the meeting, the children share ideas to help our school to work towards becoming more Eco Friendly. At the start of the year, our Eco Warriors carried out an environmental review of our school. As a result, they decided to focus on these three areas: Litter, Waste and Saving Energy. 



This year, the Eco Warriors wanted to reduce the amount of litter in their local park, so that it is not a danger to wildlife or other park users. They were also concerned that the amount of plastic litter found in the park could potentially enter our rivers and oceans. They know how important it is to reduce the amount of plastic in the sea, as they have researched how marine animals can be affected by ingesting or becoming entangled in plastic.

Actions planned for 2023/2024:

  • Visits to local park to carry out a litter pick
  • Eco members will create anti-litter posters, to be displayed around the school and in the local park.
  • Litter pick around school


The Eco Warriors were aware of how many items end up in landfill, when they could have been recycled or reused. The wanted to take action to reduce waste in our school community, by raising awareness of how items can be recycled/reused, especially with plastic packaging that is used in school and in lunchboxes i.e. crisp and biscuit wrappers. 

Actions planned for 2023/2024: 

  • On the waiting list to become a recycling hub for different items 
  • Bins specifically for crisp packets and plastic wrappers in the dinner hall that will be recycled each week at a designated recycling point 
  • Flyers and posters to educate others on what we can recycle
