Eco-committee representatives from across the Bolton School campus presented an overview of their work, over the previous year, to the Governing Body. The event formed part of the celebrations around each of three schools within the Foundation - the Junior Boys’ School, Boys’ Division and Girls’ Division - being awarded a prestigious Eco Schools’ Green Flag. 

Pupils stood by display boards in the School’s Riley Centre and confidently discussed their work with governors. They spoke about the different projects and events, from bees to garden centre trips and planting trees and potatoes, to picking up litter, recycling and meat-free Thursdays. Students had also been participating in the Earthshot Prize which is designed to incentivise change and help to repair our planet over the next 10 years. Each school gave a presentation and displayed great knowledge of the eco topics in a very mature and engaging presentational style. 

Hesketh House, the Junior Girls’ School at Bolton School is applying this year for eco-status. The award involves working on three distinct topics such as biodiversity and waste. 

One Senior School parent said: ‘Being a member of the school eco club and council has unlocked and magnified a passion, awareness and appreciation for the environment within our boy, which is a joy to see. Our son is often excited to update us on activities he has participated in, including visiting RHS Bridgewater, birdwatching, litter picking and discussions on waste and recycling. He is clearly developing a sense of social responsibility from his involvement in the eco club.’
