Eco-Curriculars at Knox Academy

At Knox Academy, we value the environment in our local community and in the wider world. We feel that it is important for young people to engage with environmental issues, which have an impact on our present and undoubtedly on our future. For this reason, there are two environmental clubs at Knox Academy in which students can get involved: the Eco-Committee and the Green Team.

The Eco-Committee is a student and staff group which works to implement positive environmental changes within Knox Academy and the school community. The committee meets once a week on Tuesdays at lunch time in Miss Laudi's room (T1.2) to organise environmental initiatives like awareness campaigns, donation drives, and our ever popular Eco-Week.

The Green Team is Knox Academy's recycling club and we meet every Wednesday at lunch time in Miss Laudi's room (T1.2). We get together once a week to empty recycling from classrooms around the school and we work on other projects throughout the year too. We have an amazing group of students in S1-S4 who are already involved and we always welcome new members!

Follow us on twitter!

For further information or if you would like to contribute to these groups, please contact Miss Laudi.

The clothing collection for Rock Trust will continue throughout this week until Friday 22 March. We're looking for clean clothes for ages 16-25. Please bring all donations to Miss Laudi's room. The deadline for buying a bamboo toothbrush for £2 is also this Friday. If you would like one, please place your order with Miss Laudi!

Thanks to the enthusiasm of Knox students and staff, the Eco-Committee completely sold out of our first batch of bamboo toothbrushes! You're all amazing for making the switch! Due to demand, we're still taking orders for bamboo toothbrushes. If you'd still like to order some (you're welcome to buy more than 1), please bring in your money to Miss Laudi by the end of this week. Based on the number of payments, we'll order a new batch of toothbrushes and deliver them to you once they come in! At only £2 per toothbrush, it's an excellent price! Thanks for your Eco-Week support!
