The Eco-group is made up of representatives from each stage from P3 to P7. Their role is to make the pupils of Dedridge aware of environmental issues which currently affect them or may affect them in the future.
The aim is to get as many pupils involved in being kinder to the environment and we are keen that Dedridge Primary is an 'Eco-friendly school'. The Eco-group meet on a regular basis and work on their 'Action Plan' for the year.
They plan assemblies, organise competitions and campaigns and inform classes around the school how they can help the environment and encourage their peers to be eco-friendly.
Dedridge Primary currently has its 2nd Green Flag.
Enterprise is now embedded within the curriculum and the children have many opportunities to use and develop their enterprising skills in a variety of ways. We strive to develop a variety of business links to further enhance the children's experiences.
Examples of this include
- charity fundraising,
- organising and participating in a range of events
- and running a class business.
The children are required to work collaboratively towards their common goals, giving them vital experience and preparing them for life beyond school.
