Its been a busy year for St Michael’s C of E High School, Crosby, with their eco group supporting numerous campaigns throughout the year including the ‘RSPB’s Big School Bird Watch’, ‘Energy Month’ and ‘National Waste Week.’
Students have also continued to work hard to maintain and develop these areas around school. Several new wild flower meadows have been sown; wooden stepping stones, made from logs.
The area has attracted a variety of birds, butterflies, insects and reptiles. Indeed during their Year 5 activity day, a group of primary students were delighted to discover a hedgehog on the grounds.
Following on from last year’s success, St Michael’s received a certificate of merit from the judges of North West in Bloom.
The team also received several awards at the Sefton Eco Champion Awards held at the Ramada Hotel in Southport. The awards were introduced to celebrate pupils and schools from Sefton and further afield, who have made a lasting impression during one of the eco centres award-winning education programmes.
In addition to winning ‘Most Improved School’ in the Green League Table, Year 7 pupil Alfie Butler stole the show by receiving a framed certificate for being an eco champion finalist.
Not only that, but Alfie also collected a glass trophy for winning the ‘Community Ambassador’ award.
