Environmental Science at Malvern Primary

greenteamThe Environmental Science Team at Malvern Primary School is implementing a programme which has the following objectives:

  • To raise awareness and to educate the whole Malvern Primary School community about the actions required to achieve a more sustainable school environment.
  • To change behaviour in how we manage and use our resources.

Sustainability is the theme that underpins these objectives and every class in the school has representatives on the Environmental Science Team.

The message is clear:

  • everyone is responsible
  • every little action helps.

We use a 3-tiered approach to achieve our objectives and the school currently has a very good recycling programme, a kitchen garden, a focus on nude food and a focus on keeping your, “Hands off the Switch.”

The three tiers are:

  • Nude Food
  • The 4 R’s
  • Energy: a finite resource

Running parallel to the Environmental Science Team there is also an enthusiastic parent volunteer group called the Green Team who are involved in the Malvern Primary School push toward sustainability.
