Proudly waving our green flag

At Warden Hill we are delighted with our Eco-Schools Green Flag as it is a constant reminder of the ecological achievements of our Eco Warriors and it is our aim to inspire the next generation of innovative, inspirational environmentalists to make considered choices which help to protect our planet.

At our school, each class has an Eco Warrior representative, elected by their peers each term, after they have given a short presentation to show how they will meet the roles and responsibilities of being an Eco Warrior. The group meet every week with Mrs Catchpole and Mrs Taylor (Eco Warrior Coordinators) to work on our identified action plan target areas which are: Global Citizenship, Transport and Waste. 

We are very proud of our Eco Warriors and the way they continually amaze us with their ideas, the way they work hard to raise awareness of environmental issues and how they have actively engaged in helping to make our school more environmentally friendly.

New Look for Eco Warriors and School Council

The Infant School Council and Eco Warriors have been working together on an exciting project! We have been looking for ways to make our school more sustainable and environmentally friendly. We realised that our School and Eco Council badges were expensive to buy, were made out of metal and were not being re-used. Therefore, we explored different badges that would be better for our environment and found bamboo ones. It was our job to create different designs and we asked our classes which ones were their favourite. Our new more sustainable badges are now being worn by our new council representatives. When they finish their election term, they will hand these back to the teachers so that we can re-use them as this is better for the environment.

We are very proud of our team work to create such a fantastic set of badges!

10 out of 10!

Warden Hill once again took a team of 4 to participate in the annual Rotary Club general knowledge quiz, competing against schools from across Cheltenham.

The team, consisting of Sammy, Ved, Annabel and Noah, answered questions on science, geography, pop culture, sport, maths, grammar, history and general knowledge.

Some of our best correct answers were:

Whose death ultimately led to the commencement of the First World War? (Archduke Ferdinand)

Which state is separated by Israel? (Palestine)

Which is the only move in chess which allows the king to move more than one space? (Castling)

The team did an outstanding job, clinching a final round 10/10 to beat a formidable Lakeside team by a single point.
As winners, Warden Hill will be hosting the competition next year, looking to retain our title!

Well done team!
