Welcome to the Green School section of our website. In this section you can read all about the ‘Dream Team’ or our Green School Committee! You can also read about our flags, what steps are in each Green School programme and what we are working on at the moment.
In fact, this year we are attempting to earn our SIXTH Green Flag! The theme for the sixth flag is ‘Global Citizenship’. We will keep you updated on all our project work with Ms. Judge – and hopefully we’ll raise the Green Flag for Global Citizenship Litter and Waste in the future!!
To prepare for our (hopefully!!) Sixth Flag we have been very busy!!
We have been maintaining our previous 5 themes – 1. Litter and waste 2. Energy 3. Water 4. Travel 5. Biodiversity
We are now about to have our review visit for our 6th flag – Global Citizenship Litter and waste (Keep your fingers crossed for us!)
This theme is focused on raising awareness on how looking after our environment can aid people all over the world, promoting ‘Active Citizenship’ and making an improvement in the litter and waste management in our school. We have litter wardens marching around checking the recycling bins….they won’t let anyone away with a thing! The bins are in great shape now and litter is decreasing across the school. We have also been learning about litter and waste around the world, climate change and fair trade with our teachers in class. The committee completed a nationality survey discovering all the different countries our pupils and their families come from. The classes are now doing project work on these countries. We also plan to have a nationality action day when we will present our work in a fun way!
We as a committee and as a school having been really trying to promote a sense of responsibility towards the planet and to create active concern and empathy towards others across the globe. There are posters all over the school created by the committee to spread the word too.
We will post an update after our review on the 8th March, fingers crossed it will be good news!!
We will leave you with our new Green Code ‘Don’t litter or waste or else the world will be a disgrace’!
Thanks for reading,
Your Green School Committee!
