At Northdown Primary school, we are part of Eco-Schools group which develops pupils’ skills, raises environmental awareness, improves the school environment and creates financial savings for schools as well as a whole host of other benefits.
The Eco Warriors club have worked together to create an Eco-code that encompasses the work that is going on across the school. The group aims to make small changes as a community to create one big change.

Eco Warrior update:
From the 4th March until 22nd March, we will be running a collaboration with Lush Canterbury where the children will be collecting bottle tops, which the company can then recycle into packaging. This is an exciting opportunity for the children, as the class which collects the most will be eligible for a prize. This project will culminate in an Eco-week which promises to be full of interesting topics and projects for the children to explore.
Northdown has been collaborating with Lush Canterbury on a recycling project. The children were challenged to collect bottletops which aren't easily recycled.
The school collected a whopping 8253 bottletops!
The lucky winners of the Lush bath bomb making workshop is Juniper Class, collecting 2359 bottletops! Well done Team Northdown!
