Eco Committee and Junior Travel Ambassadors

Chepstow House Eco Committee have been working really hard this term. New members were elected in September and met up to discuss what being in the eco committee really means. They then carried out an environmental review looking at nine areas such as ‘school grounds’ and ‘global citizenship’. After doing this, they decided to focus on weaker areas of ‘waste’, ‘energy’ and ‘biodiversity’. They created an action plan with targets to help Chepstow House improve and have been busy coming up with ideas for ways to educate and engage the rest of the school. This week, Chepstow House is thrilled to announce that we have been awarded the Bronze Eco School Award to recognise the efforts in making our school a more eco-friendly, sustainable place to be!

This year Tommy (Harrier Hawk) and Alex (Grey Hawk) are the Chepstow House Junior Travel Ambassadors. Their job is to keep the children safe when out and about on the local roads. Throughout the year they will be taking part in Kiss and Drop duties to ensure that parents are sticking to the travel plan. On Wednesday, Tommy and Alex visited Holland Park Ecology Centre to attend a JTA Forum, held by RBKC. As well as learning what it takes to be a JTA, Tommy and Alex created well-informed high vis vests which they intend to wear on Kiss and Drop. Miss Hunter and Miss Greensted couldn’t resist taking the opportunity to create their own high vis vests and all four of them proudly walked back to school wearing them! Thank you to RBKC for such an educational day!
