At Athelstan we are passionate about looking after our environment. We have a team of Eco Champions who represent each class and the opinions of their peers. We meet on a half termly basis to discuss what we can do to improve our impact on the school and amend our action plan to keep focused. We have energy monitors who go around school to check that we are conserving energy where possible and we monitor each room for their efficiency. We have achieved a lot so far this year and have much more that we would like to do.
