Eco-Schools

Parsons Down have now been awarded our Green Flag, making us an official Eco-School!

 

Eco-Schools is a global environmental programme with 19.5 million children - across 67 countries - taking part. It is a pupil led programme, run by an Eco-Committee comprised of children, teachers, support staff, governors and parents. There are ten Eco-Schools topics for the Eco-Committee to consider:

Biodiversity

Energy

Global Citizenship

Healthy Living

Litter

Marine

School Grounds

Transport

Waste

Water

In our first year, we had to focus on 3 topics and we chose Energy, Waste and Water. This year, our new Eco-Committee were required to choose 2 further topics. They chose School Grounds and Litter.
