ECO Work

Our school has achieved its third green flag in June 2016 in recognition for the school's excellent environmental work. 

The school elects an ECO committee annually to work on achieving actions to bring about improvement in the school.  Some of the areas we have worked on in the past are developing a school garden, recycling and reducing school waste, applying for and receiving solar panels and educating the whole school on caring for wildlife and litter management. 

We highlight important issues to everyone in our assemblies throughout the year.

We work with a variety of environmental agencies each year and plan interesting events for our whole school. Recently we have had a visit from the Water Bus, Lisa Maitland and the local council. 

We are delighted with our new solar panels and are glad that our school is saving lots of money on energy.

Look out for our website updates from our ECO Committee!

Thankyou to all of our families for your support with our ECO initiatives.
