Eco Committee

The Eco-Schools programme is designed to empower and inspire young people to make positive environmental changes to their school and also to the wider community, while building on their skills, including numeracy and literacy, and encompassing Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship.

Our Eco-Committee consists of two representatives, democratically elected from each year group, and plays an important role in the learner voice at Ysgol Bryn Elian. Teachers are also represented on the committee and we have a link governor. The Eco-Committee complete an annual Environmental Review, which feeds into an Action Plan focussing on four core areas for improvement. The Eco-Code for Ysgol Bryn Elian is designed by our learners and is proudly displayed in classrooms and communal areas.

The Eco-Committee hold half termly meetings. This academic year we have welcomed three new members to the team and have elected a new Chairperson and Secretary. In December 2023, after a rigorous assessment, we were delighted to hear that the Eco-Committee have achieved their Green Flag: 5th Platinum Award. In Bryn Elian we are delighted to see that, thanks to the efforts of our learners, Eco-Schools goes from strength to strength!
