Welcome to Ringway’s ECO Warriors Club!
Our Eco Warriors help Ringway Primary School become a greener, healthier place to learn. An ECO Warrior will be involved in vital projects, from helping to reduce paper waste in the classroom, planting trees for insects and local animals or even growing herbs and vegetables for the school kitchen! We will even be working hard together to use these projects in our efforts to be presented with the prestigious Eco-Schools Green Flag Award.
Recycling Centre Visit
Our Eco Warriors were kindly invited to visit our local recycling centre for a closer look into what happens after throw our waste in the different bins. The children had a fantastic day and learnt lots about the recycling process!
Our School Farm
We have spent a lot of time transforming our school garden into a farm! As well as growing lots of different fruit and vegetables, we are almost ready to welcome our first residents! A very kind friend of the school, Ian, has spent his free time building our chicken run and chicken coop! We are so excited for the chickens to arrive!
Manchester Airport's Eco Garden Competition
In Eco Club, we have taken part in Manchester Airport's Eco Garden competition and have spent many hours designing our dream Eco Garden! We thought carefully about how our garden can help our students, staff, community and local wildlife. Here's our proposal video!

Groundwork Greater Manchester
We are so lucky to have some fantastic volunteers from Groundwork GM to come in and do some exciting Eco Club sessions with us! We have loved creating artwork with nature and growing our own vegetables with vegetable scraps.
In Eco Club we have been so excited to plant trees. Over the next few years we will hopefully see new Rowan, Apple and Hazel trees sprouting in Ringway's field. They will be great for lots of different local birds and insects.
In Eco Club we have been discussing the amazing things that birds bring to our school, so we wanted to put up some bird boxes and gave them a safe home!
