Caring, Helping and Sharing

Eco Committee

We are pleased to announce that our school has being awarded the Eco Schools Green Flag Award for the THIRD time!  Our Eco Committee have worked extremely hard with Mrs Leyssens to make our school as green as it can be!  To be awarded our Green Flag we had to monitor the amount of litter on the playground, look after our school grounds, reduce, re-use, re-cycle and save energy wherever we could.  This is a fantastic achievement for our school and well done to the Eco Committee!

Assessor's comments:

"Such a wonderful school with some really great work going on.  The pupils are really enthusiastic and I loved the displays around school they are wonderful.  The grounds are fantastic and being well used by teachers and pupils alike.  You showcase all of the hard work you are doing (some of it without realising!).  You can really see the difference all the changes have been making around the school.  Well done everyone".
