Environmental Council

EC stands for Environmental Council. This group is responsible for the environmental issues within our school and the wider community. The Junior Environmental Council was first formed at Apollo Parkways Primary School in 2006. From 2014 it will be known as the Environmental Council. Students from grade 3-6 are elected by their peers to be in the council for the school year. They organize events such as Arbor Week, Mobile Muster, Paper Recycling and more. They have an important role to play in our school. As an EC representative they encourage other students to reduce water usage and reduce the amount of energy they use in the classroom by always remembering to turn off lights and power.  

The EC has now become a big part of our school and its programs and for the first time two grade six students have the role of Environmental Council Captains.
