Eco Schools


Parents-Guardians Committee (PGC)

Eco-Schools is for Parents and Guardians too!

Parents and guardians are an important part of a strong and resilient Eco Team. There are many ways parents’ and guardians’ diverse skill sets and expertise can benefit their child’s Eco-Schools programme, including:

Helping to manage food and herb gardens is a popular niche that parents and guardians can fill.

Parents and guardians can collaborate with teachers and students to create and implement an environmental action plan for their child’s school.

For projects large and small, parents and guardians can help with researching and writing funding applications for everything from gardening supplies and tree planting to rainwater harvesting systems and field trips.

Many Eco-Schools actions are most effective when parents and guardians get involved. Campaigns like waste-free lunches and reducing single-use plastics as well as walk and roll to school active transportation practices are great examples of how parents and guardians can boost their child’s learning opportunities and lend support.

Parents and guardians can help lead or assist with educational workshops.

The simple act of sharing Eco Committee goals and news with other parents and guardians can help foster support and interest in the school community.

Many schools can benefit from sponsorships from local businesses and organisations.
