    Meat Free Monday

    Published on Friday 18 October 2019 by Mr Askew.

    We would like to introduce you to our new idea which we would like to start after half term. We have thought about starting to do a Meat Free Monday at Lunch time at school. We would like to encourage children who bring packed lunch to take part in this as well.

    Our aim is to cut out meat one day a week to try and slow down meat consumption, as animals are being overbred to manage the demand for meat. This is damaging our planet as the animals produce methane.Greenhouse gases are causing climate change and this is damaging our planet. We hope that by making little changes we can make big differences.

    (We expect teachers and staff to join in too!)

    Primary Pupil Climate Change Consultation

    Three members of our newly formed Junior Global Committee recently represented the group at the County Durham Primary Pupil Climate Change Consultation. The three children were chosen after writing excellent letters of application to join the group.

    When they were at the meeting, they shared their opinions on issues that face our county in trying to meet targets set in reducing emissions. The children were excellent representatives and had some really interesting and informed opinions.

    Junior Global Committee

    Published on Tuesday 24 September 2019 by Mr Askew.

    Welcome to the new Crook Primary School Junior Global Committee page. On here, you will find all the latest updates of everything that we are doing.

    Over 20 pupils wrote excellent letters of application stating why they wanted to join the group and how they could make a difference. During our first meeting the group the children decided on the name Junior Global Committee. The reason for this is that they want to not just learn and have an impact on issues in our local community, but also global issues.

    We look forward to sharing everything that we do!
