We are delighted to be awarded our second Green Flag from the Eco-Schools programme.

This top award recognises our efforts to raise environmental awareness and to make our School environment a more sustainable one.

Our student Eco-Council has led all these efforts, focusing on the three topics of biodiversity, energy and healthy living.  Eco-Council members planned a variety of projects over the past year: Cut Your Carbon week, the Big Battery Hunt, a second-hand skiwear sale, Healthy Eating week, Wally Eco-Magazine and outdoor learning.

Eco-Schools coordinator Mrs Brown praised the work of the Eco-Council: “Sustainability is a more important issue than ever. The students on our Eco-Council have shown that by working together, we can make an impact. The whole School has been galvanised to include sustainability topics in their teaching and learning and to consider the environment in all aspects of how the school operates.”

Council Chairperson Ava said “My work within the Eco-Council has allowed me to develop my leadership and communication skills by running meetings, presenting assemblies and organising sustainable events. I have been able to make a difference within my school community.”

This year students are working on the topics of transport, school grounds and water in their aim for a third Green Flag.
