Eco Council

We have recently set up a new Eco School Committee at Ysgol Ty Coch.  The
Eco-Schools Programme encourages pupils to engage with sustainable development and global citizenship issues. This gives our children the chance to discuss ways to make our school kinder to
our planet.

Pupils take key roles in decision-making and participation in order to reduce the environmental impact of the school. In this way, Eco-Schools extends learning beyond the classroom and develops responsible attitudes both at home and in the wider community. 

We have termly Eco Days where we plants trees and plants, tidy up the school grounds and generally have outdoor fun. We recycle garden waste, make compost, and recycle all card, paper and plastics. We work with the local community council to plant bulbs and trees in the surrounding community. We are currently working on a project to re develop the grounds at our Buarth Y Capel site into a reserve for local wildlife.
