The Eco Team meet regularly to discuss how we can make The Cottesloe School greener and more environmentally friendly and are working towards the school achieving 'Eco School' status. The team have worked with our catering company to remove polystyrene packaging in the canteen, and reduce the amount of packaging used. This has included replacing all the plastic cutlery in the canteen with recyleable wooden knives and forks. The group have also persuaded the school to add more water points around the school so drinking water is easily available so that bottles can be reused. The school is trying to reduce the amount of paper used and is using eco-friendly paper, in addition to recycling used pens, and collecting crisp packets to be recyled.

Duke of Edinburgh Awards DofE
Is offered to students in Year 9 and taken up by approximately 40% of the year group. We launch the award in the Autumn Term with an assembly to the whole cohort and an information evening for parents. Participants generally start their activities in January which provides enough time for the award to completed by the end of the academic year.
The Award consists of 4 sections; Physical, Skill, Volunteering and Expedition, with students taking responsibility for identifying opportunities to complete these. The DofE team will support participants by highlighting opportunities in the local area and within school.
Students will choose how to structure their award. From the Physical, Skill and Volunteering sections one must last for six months, the other two for three months each. Students that successfully complete the award make pre-existing enrichment activities fit their award structure.
