“It is very evident that the Eco Ambassadors are very well informed and the schools staff are clear in the direction the school is progressing re education for sustainable development as highlighted in the school development plan.
It would be great if very special praise could be given to the following members people.
Mrs Sadler, the Headteacher for finding time during a very busy day to meet with me, her dedication and great drive and enthusiasm for supporting sustainable development at Highbury and brilliant ideas for using ‘waste as a resource’ and saving money too!
Mrs Fuller, the Forest School leader for her enthusiasm and drive, listening to the children’t ideas and driving them forward.
Mrs Boulton, the Eco Lead for her enthusiasm, supporting the Eco Ambassadors and keeping everyone informed.
Last but certainly not least, a big thank you to all the Eco Ambassadors for their dedication in supporting their classes and helping with special weeks, eg Eco Week. Thank you to the great tour guides; Carter, Lexie, Joshua, Finn, Grace and Madison, your knowledge base is amazing, good luck with all your projects.
