Ringwood Waldorf's Green Group

Published on 2016-01-11 by Gill Hickman

Ringwood Waldorf was the last school to join our Sussed in the Forest group of schools. They managed to contribute to Postcard to Paris within days of hearing about it! It was a privilege to join their adult environmental group, a team of teachers and parents who met to consider how their own ‘green’ objectives for the school could dovetail into the criteria for Eco-Schools. There were interesting discussions: there were interesting proposals regarding the grounds and all agreed that a focus on energy and recycling was needed, and that monitoring must be set up immediately. Unusually, this included a proposal for weather monitoring. Class 5 emerge as the dominant force at this school but the Eco Group will be formed from children that represent all age groups.
