Our Eco Code
With significant environmental issues affecting our planet as a result of our over consumption of resources and unchecked human activity, the youth of today are fighting back and embracing environmental issues to tackle them head on. At Harrow Bangkok students, staff and parents work collaboratively to improve our environmental awareness and actions at school and home.
We have joined the Eco Schools programme which is an international movement empowering students to make a change in their community. Our students are required to reflect and review their school environment and create action plans to improve it, actively working together to achieve their goals. Our Global Leaders in Lower School and Eco Committee in Upper School work together with other members of our school community in order to reduce environmental impact and change lifestyles to be more eco-friendly.
Working in collaboration, we have generated our own Eco Code which we are using to guide and drive our environmental projects and eco-awareness and we are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Eco-school Silver Flag for our environmental efforts and progress!
We work together to reduce our energy and use of resources.
We care about all living things on land and in the sea.
We think first before we choose to use.
We continue to learn and raise awareness about the environment.
We will recycle effectively and make eco-changes to our lifestyles.
We will create sustainable solutions to environmental problems.
The Eco code is a guide which we have shared with students, teachers, parents, administrative staff, School leaders, Support Service and our alumni hoping that together we can make a difference. In order to achieve our goals, we use the curriculum, assemblies and presentations to educate our students, the Leadership in Action department to provide opportunities for students to broaden their horizons through activities and trips such as Rice Cropping and Harrow Ocean Warriors beach clean ups, energy data to quantify our consumption and meetings between students and our Operations department increase their involvement and understanding of the decision making in our school.
