Synergy Multi-Academy Trust is made up of schools, both secondary and primary, from north Norfolk. The Trust was initially established by Reepham High School and College in 2015. Our vision is simple; for all of our schools to work together to provide teaching and learning of the highest quality and for all of them to provide an exceptional range of educational experiences and opportunities.
A message from Reepham Primary schools Eco Team
The Eco Team started in the summer of 2017, it was started by Emily and now it’s a group of 8. When we were concerned about the environment and wildlife we started to take action.
We talked to our head teacher every month, about what we could do to help our environment. In our school we do litter picking, bin monitoring and we also do assemblies to make our school aware of what is happening to the world.
We did a presentation to our school a few weeks ago and were lucky enough to have our Malawi friend (Benjamin) in that week. We got to show him our presentation also we got to go on a trip with him to Sheringham shoal.
We also made a question and suggestion box which went on our eco team board so we could incorporate their suggestions into our ideas. We have a board which people can sign up to do the things that help the environment and keep our school litter free.
Our mission is to make our school plastic and litter free and help the environment as much as possible. We hope to do an assembly every other month about different ways to help the environment. The eco team hopes that this will inform the younger students about plastic and litter so that when we leave to go to high school our club will carry on.
What we have achieved so far
In the last two years, we have found an alternative to red noses at comic relief. As a group we started to think about what happens to the red noses we buy each year. All of us decided to paint red noses instead of the usual noses going to landfill. We have encouraged our peers to litter pick and it has become rather popular.
We are extremely grateful to our school who have provided litter pickers and recycling bins.
