Sustainability

Sustainability at TDJS

Sustainability and being ‘eco’ is becoming an increasing focus at Thames Ditton Junior School, as the need to be more environmental friendly becomes more important. To make sure we are playing our part, we have a small committee which takes an active lead in our work and initiatives.  The committee is currently led by Mrs Alcock

The committee meets once a month to discuss ideas, monitor how the school is using energy and its resources, to to look at current news stories about the environment and initiatives in our local area and nationally. Away from these meetings, children feedback to their classes, encourage their peers to take an active interest and promote their ‘green’ mentality throughout the school and the community.

In 2016, our school’s ‘Eco Code’ was updated for the second time. The pledge is shared with all staff and students to try and promote a consistent approach to our effort across the school.

 

Reuse, recycle and remember our Eco Code. We all agree to...

     - put our rubbish in the correct bins.

     - walk to school when we can.

     - look after our environment.

     - use resources wisely and carefully.

     - save electricity and water whenever we can.

     - remember that this is everyone's responsibility.

 

November 2023 - Switch if off competition

Thank you to the many, many children who entered the competition – a fabulous standard and wonderful, creative ideas.  The winning entries will be displayed next to light switches around the school, and many others will be displayed on our school Eco board.

Remember: save electricity and switch it off!

Some of the entries and the winning designs are shown in the video below:

 

What can you do at home?

Being ‘green’ doesn’t stop when you leave the school; it is important to play your part when you are at home too! Here are some ideas for you to think about: 

  • Help sort out the recycling in your home.

  • Remember to turn off lights and taps when they are not being used.

  • Encourage your family to walk more, especially on local journeys.

  • Eating all of your dinner; remember food waste isn’t very green!

  • Buy energy efficient products, such as light bulbs.

  • Make sure you don’t drop litter at home or when out and about.

  • Talk with your parents about being more environmentally friendly.
