Immanuel College launches new Eco-Council to tackle environmental issues

Students at Immanuel College have formed a new Eco-Council as part of a strategy to improve sustainability and tackle green issues across the school.

Immanuel College is based on Leeds Road in Idle, Bradford, and is part of the Bradford Diocesan Academies Trust, which leads a family of thirteen primary and four secondary schools across the region to deliver high quality education within the context of Christian belief and practice.

The Eco-Council is formed of students from across the school who have all applied to take part and all have a keen interest in supporting the future of environmental issues. Mrs Lindsay, who teaches Geography and is also facilitating the Eco-Council, explained:

“The Council is something that is run by the Eco-Schools Green Flag award. Over a period of three years we will be working towards achieving the award and it’s something that any school can get involved with.

“We feel like it’s going to be really beneficial for Immanuel College as we move to become more sustainable and contribute to our local community.”

Samuel Phillips, 16, who is currently studying Psychology, History and Biology AS Levels in Post 16 at Immanuel College and has been appointed as the Director of the Eco-Council, added: “We’ve completed step one of the plan; forming the committee and allocating roles. We’re now moving onto step two; a review, that we will be looking at over the next few weeks, and then we’ll write up an action plan.

“This is a really good way of showing younger people that their voice can have an impact and, if they put the time and effort in, that it can bear fruit. My longer-term hope is that we can have an impact on the whole school.“
