At Coppermill, the Eco Council play a vital role in school life. At the beginning of each year, children are given the opportunity to apply for the Eco Council and complete an application form. The previous year's Eco Council look over these forms and shortlist children to take part in elections in class.
They look at the skills that the children feel they can bring to the role as well as their ideas for how the school can continue its ongoing commitment to being sustainable and eco-friendly. The children who are shortlisted then present to their class, who vote anonymously for the two best candidates. See the photo below for our wonderful school council for this year.
