The EcoHunsley committee meets every Friday lunchtime in L26, which is on the first floor of the Sixth Form building. For any information, email:  rachel.acaster@southhunsley.org.uk

All Eco-schools are required to have and display an Eco code.

We obtained the Eco – Schools Bronze Award in March 2017, the Silver Award in June 2017 and our first Green Flag Award in May 2018.

Since then we have achieved the Green Flag Award every year, including 2023 and achieving a Distinction in 2024.

We have chosen to work on the following topics on our journey to the next Green Flag:

  1. Biodiversity
  2. Waste
  3. School grounds

We have worked hard throughout the years to improve the school’s environmental footprint and sustainability efforts, which we do through small projects each year. Some changes can be easily seen such as the removal of plastic drinks sold at lunch, the litter picks that we run throughout the year, and the improvement to Kingston pond. Some are more gradual changes such as the introduction of bird house and bug hotels to improve the biodiversity around the school.

In November 2020, we were selected to be one of the host schools of the Youth Climate Summit , an event hosted by the charity Global Action Plan and that was streamed nationally. Members of the Eco-committee compered day 3 of the Summit for secondary schools on the theme of Food, Farming and Forests.

Two of our pupils were appointed as Regional Youth Ambassadors for the Summit and alongside a pupil from Northern Ireland, Jasmine (Year 8)  started the whole summit on the first day. The event was a great success and firmly put South Hunsley on the map of schools that care about the environment and the global community.
