‘The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.’ -Robert Swan

 

Our intent for the children at Christ Church is to improve their understanding of how to live in, and be part of, a sustainable world. We aim to help them grow into responsible citizens caring for both our species and habitats, making positive changes that will benefit our ecosystems for years to come.

The children in the Eco Council take great responsibility in leading initiatives and events across the school, helping to achieve positive outcomes for both the local and wider environment. Following the undertaking of a whole school environmental review, the children make informed choices of where their efforts will be most impactful, taking a hands-on approach to achieving their aims and encouraging their peers to do the same.
