Green Schools

Our garden is located in the open space at the centre of our school and is used as an outside classroom, as a quiet space for boys when they need it and as a working allotment with each class assigned a bed to grow their crops each year.

The Green Schools Committee worked really hard in 2019-2020 to meet all the requirements and we were awarded our first Green Schools Flag in October 2020. The committee comprised a boy from each class from 2nd class up to 6th class.

Mr. Agnew and Mr. Owen chaired the fortnightly meetings and we developed our plan of separating paper waste and general waste in each classroom.

Each afternoon at 2pm, the 'litter monitors and collectors', visit each class. The classes were awarded an emoji of a smiley face, sad face or a plain face onto the class calendar. The winning class each month received a night off homework, extra yard time or a sweet treat.

This year because of Covid-19, all work is online, but we are now working towards our Blue flag, for Water Awareness and reducing wastage around the school.
