An Introduction to the work of Eco-
enthusiastic about getting involved in environmental projects both
locally, nationally and globally. Meetings are held every fortnight in
the geography department to discuss strategies for promoting eco ideas and events and for raising environmental awareness in school.
Over the past year the group has been instrumental in maintaining a high Fairtrade profile in school with an event each term. We were runners up in the Huntingdon District Council Green Hearts Community Awards; we have entered a bid each year since the start of these awards and were touched by the words that were expressed about the school on the night, "St Ivo has always been an environmental beacon amongst schools in Huntingdonshire and 2012 has been another successful year for all involved in environmental activities with the school." Further work has been focused on the recycling of textiles and to this end the school has been in collaboration with St Ives Town Football Club to site a textile bank on the far end of the Rec Centre car park. The theme of textile recycling will be promoted by the Environmental Network (organised and run by Stuart Nunn, St Ivo geography teacher) which coordinates work between St Ivo and the local primary schools. Further afield, we are still supporting the rescue of albatross chicks in the South Pacific by collecting stamps and closer to home, we are strong supporters of Holt Island Nature Reserve.
Meetings are held in N21 on Thursdays, Week B. All new members welcome!
