Quality Education Through Sustainability
At Eaton House Schools, we equate a quality education with good health and wellbeing and we teach all of our children to have a respect for the world they live in and to adopt greener attitudes and a positive attitude to sustainability. This means that we have to demonstrate to our pupils that it is important to conserve as much as we can to help to protect the future of our planet. We routinely mark important days such as World Environment Day and World Ocean Day, and we bring in expert speakers to tell our pupils about the dangers of pollution and the environment on land and sea, encouraging them to write personal pledges to live their lives as mindfully as possible.
All of our schools have ‘green’ themes taught in the classroom, and some have a ‘Green Day’ in which many topics relating to sustainability are explored in class and in other ways, through music, drama, poetry and other media. To match our classroom teaching, we try to run our schools in a way that is sustainable to the environment, setting an example to the future generations that we teach.
