Recently, we have started the journey to becoming an international Green Flag Award Eco-School. The programme is designed to raise environmental awareness amongst young people and in England it is run by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy. Internationally, the programme is the largest educational programme in the world present in nearly 70 countries with millions of children participating. Our school is now part of this global community working to create environmental change for the benefit of our children and future generations.
Last week, the children elected their Eco-Committee which is made up of 1 child from each class. The programme will be launched across both schools as part of our Harvest Festival assemblies. The Eco-Schools programme empowers pupils, raises environmental awareness, improves the school environment and can also lead to financial saving. Being an active member of the programme will be something your child will remember for the rest of their life. We look forward to updating you on our journey to our first award.
