GREEN SCHOOLS NEWS
We are delighted to see our green flags and pennants flying for all our hard work to date. Each colour pennant reflects a different theme we have worked on.
Our most recent flags was earned for out work on Biodiversity. Biodiversity is the fifth Green- Schools theme and looks at steps which can be taken to increase awareness of the importance of native plants, animals and habitats, and to incresase species richness in a locality. We are working on our school garden this year, hoping to plant and harvest our own crops, as well as enjoying the beauty of the floweres and trees we are caring for in our school grounds.
