Eco Code

The current eco code was designed by Ryan Scott 5D2

"Give a hoot, don't pollute"

Ryan won a competition in PSE with all pupils competing.

This year we aim to update the Eco Code in a whole school competition.

Food and the Environment

The school garden was created four and a half years ago.

A selection of fruit and vegetables are grown each year including

carrots
brocolli
tomatoes
fresh herbs
and much, much more........

Second year Biology pupils have also investigated companion planting and ecological pesticides to maintain the garden.

The compost from the compost bin is finally ready to be used after years of recycling canteen food.

Unfortunately our greenhouse blew away last year.  We would appreciate any donation towards a new one.

Litter

ecobin

It is very important that everyone is responsible for disposing their own litter properly to promote a clean eco-school and develop as a wider community

The Eco group and the wider school continue to come up with new strategies to combat litter.

This years highly successful strategy was the introduction of table top bins in the street which have majorly reduced litter.

Waste Minimisation

Recycling is a very important to Carluke High School.  Current recycling projects include: mobile phones, ink cartridges, food, clothing, etc.

Paper was our most recent venture introduced this year with paper bins now in every classroom.

Day of Action

Carluke High School mini Earth Hour and Wear it bright day were hugely successful days to highlight climate change issues across the world.
