Green Schools

We are working towards our first Green Schools Flag this year.

The Green Schools Programme is an international scheme to encourage and promote eco-friendly actions in schools. It raises awareness of environmental issues in classrooms and across the school community and encourages children to take the lead in reviewing existing practices, deciding a plan for change, implementing a new plan and checking its progress.

We have a Green Schools team made up of two children from each class. They meet regularly. In February 2016, they visited the Green Schools Expo at the RDS and founds lots of inspiration. Read about their visit here.

We are working on the first flag for ‘Litter and Waste’.

Here’s our Green Schools team getting ready for the ‘National Spring Clean’.
