As a school we take every opportunity to celebrate our successes and achievements. Here are some of the things for which we have been recognised.
An international programme of the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), Eco-Schools aims to empower students to be the change our sustainable world needs by engaging them in fun, action-orientated learning.
Each school follows a seven step change process and empowers their young people to lead processes and actions wherever they can.
Over time and through commitment to the Eco-Schools seven step process, improvements will be seen in both the learning outcomes, attitude and behavior of students and the local community and ultimately the local environment. Evidence of success in these areas will eventually lead to a school being awarded ‘The Green Flag’. We currently hold The Green flag.
