Millbrook is committed to being an Eco-School where the principles of sustainable living are embedded into the heart of our school life.
We are delighted to introduce our Eco Warriors for 2017/2018. This year we are challenging ourselves to build on our successes of last year to make our school and the environment more sustainable. Look out for news of the exciting projects we will be undertaking this year!

Our Eco Warriors met with the school governors on Governor Open Morning to share the work that they have been doing to increase awareness of environmental issues. They gave a presentation, which they had previously given to the whole school following a 'Paper Free Friday', and then held a question and answer session.
The Eco Warriors had examined the school's paper usage over a normal school week and presented their findings and recommendations for reducing the amount of trees we consume, along with the energy and resources it takes to make paper. They considered home use as well in the forms of kitchen roll and tissue as well as printer paper.
We used recycled materials to create scarecrows to promote our harvest food collection.
Millbrook's Green Ambassadors visited Longley Lane Recycling Centre to see how household waste is sorted and recycled. The children learnt lots of useful facts which they are very keen to share with the rest of the school.
Here are some healthy links.
For 8 weeks there was a family nutrition programme run in Year 5! It was the best attended nutrition programme in the local authority; well done to the families which took part!
