School Council, Eco Council & Junior Travel Ambassadors
The Eco Council
At Stonehill School, we have an Eco Council. The Eco Council is a group of children who plan and undertake activities to improve the environmental performance of the school.
Eco Council elections will be taking place over the next week.
Last year, the eco-councillors worked hard to achieve the Green Flag award.
We will keep you updated on our projects for this year.
Junior Travel Ambassadors
Last year, our Junior Travel Ambassadors hosted the Modeshift Star Awards for North Hertfordshire and received conformation that we have achieved our Gold Modeshift Star. Stonehill are the only school in North Herts to be awarded the Gold level!
New Year 5 Junior Travel Ambassadors will be elected this half term and we look forward to keeping you updated about our projects.
Since the Junior Travel Ambassador Scheme started in November 2016, we have:
- Launched a Walk to School competition
- Raised awareness of road safety at our school
- Worked with Living Streets and Letchworth Council to improve safety on the roads outside our school
- Introduced our parking pledge “Don’t be road monster” to encourage safe parking in and around the school
- Informed everyone about our plans in whole school assemblies
- Arranged several Clean Air day by dressing in green to raise awareness
- Run a “Bling your bike /scooter” competition to launch the unveiling of our new scooter pods in the main school and the Early Years Unit
We held a competition after our Day-Glo day in school with some super prizes for raising awareness of safety during dark mornings which we hoped helped us achieve the Silver Modeshift Stars.
We have lots of projects happening at the moment, and planned for the future. These include:
- Organising Scooter Safety workshops for Year 2 in the autumn of 2019
- Organising Pedestrian Skills understanding for Year 3 in June 2020
- Organising a road safety workshop for the Early Years children in October 2019
- Receiving the Gold Modeshift star award in February 2020
