GEMS Wellington Primary School’s Eco Warriors are a group of student leaders who are passionate about the environment. The Warriors are a council who represent the WPS students. The candidates put themselves forward for the role and, following a vote, are then elected by their peers. They are dedicated to implementing new eco-initiatives and raising awareness about the environment in our school community. Since its formation in 2016, the Eco Warriors committee have worked hard to improve various environmental areas, including the reduction of energy usage and waste. As a result, WPS was awarded the ‘Green Flag Award’ in 2018.
The Eco Warriors have participated in the ‘Clean Up the World’ campaign where they work with other schools to pick up litter, in order to keep communities clean. The committee meets every week to discuss and review ideas and ongoing projects. The Warriors’ Eco Garden at WPS hosts an array of vegetables including tomatoes, peppers and mint.
WPS have also hosted ‘Waste Free Environment’ events to educate our students about different types of plastic and the effects of plastic on our planet. WPS are dedicated to implementing new eco-initiatives and raising awareness about the environment in our school community.
