Ruskin has a newly formed Eco-Committee who are responsible for improving the eco credentials of our school community. The 10 members of the Eco-Committee recently carried out a survey of the school and have formed an action plan for the remainder of the academic year. Our focus areas include:
Improving biodiversity – We are hoping to find some suitable homes for animal habitats and also get involved with some national wildlife events.
Improving school grounds – 240 new trees are being delivered to Ruskin next month. The Eco-Committee will be involved in planting many of these trees within the school site. We are also hoping to add indoor plants to many of the classrooms.
Energy – Our KS4 members will be carrying out an energy audit within the school. They will also be encouraging all staff and students to reduce any unnecessary energy consumption and exploring ways that the school can be more efficient in general.
