Colneis Junior School’s Environmental Achievenments

We would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to Debbie and Litter-free Felixstowe for donating litter-picking equipment to our schools. Our enthusiastic children are enjoying making good use of the equipment.

School Council

Our school council representatives carried out questionnaires with their classes, to find out what they feel is working well at school and what can be done to improve our school. Following a meeting, where the representatives shared the feedback from each class, Year 6 children interviewed Mr. Girling to find out what changes could be made.

School Council Representatives

Year 3

The Year 3 council reps want to help ensure that everybody at our school is kind and respectful.

Year 4

The Year 4 council reps are dedicated to ensure that everybody feels valued and gets to share their views and ideas on how our school can be improved even more.

Year 5

The Year 5 council reps want to help to improve Felixstowe by suggesting ideas to help the community.

Year 6

The Year 6 council reps are working with Felixstowe Town Council and other schools to make Felixstowe more eco-friendly. They are proud of our town but want to make it the best it can possibly be.

Eco Warriors 2024

The eco-warriors have been collecting ideas, from all of the children in the school, about what they want our grounds to be like in the future. These ideas will contribute towards writing a vision statement for our ‘Colneis Nature Park’ as our part of the National Education Nature Park programme.

We have already made so many improvements to our wildlife area and are really excited about making it even better!

Our Eco Warriors make a stand to stop a woodland area being destroyed. 

Following some work carried out by our children to stop a number of trees being felled, we were invited to help plant trees to enhance the woodland area. As well as taking part in such a wonderful project, the children have learnt that their opinions matter and they have a voice in the community.
