The Eco-committee of students, led by teaching support assistant, Danielle Bettle, have continued to embark on a meaningful path towards improving the environment in both the school and the local community while at the same time having a life-long positive impact on the lives of young people.

Lee Wray-Davies, Eco Schools Manager, England congratulated the school and thanked the Eco-committee for their continuing work on achieving the Green Flag during these unprecedented times. He said: “It’s a true reflection of the schools determination to make a real difference.”

An internationally recognised award

Eco-Schools Green Flag is an internationally recognised award for excellence in environmental action and learning. The programme includes a Seven Step framework as well as a long-term commitment and students being involved in decision-making.

Stuart Jamieson, Head of Education, said: “I am incredibly proud of the students and staff involved in this vital award. This programme provides a unique opportunity that empowers pupils to lead change within school whilst also having a positive impact on engaging with our wider local community”.

As well as the Seven Steps they have also worked on 5 additional topics which are healthy living, global citizenship, school grounds, marine, and waste. The Eco committee have enjoyed covering these through a range of different activities such as, Youth Club, Tasty Tuck Award, Daily Mile, Operation Christmas Child, Global Climate Strike, Australia Day, creating a Sensory garden, Forest Schools, growing their own fruit and veg, bird feeders in the school grounds, research sessions on plastic pollution in our oceans, beach clean-up, litter picking and recycling.
