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.
