Green Schools

Green-Schools, known internationally as Eco-Schools, is an international environmental education programme, environmental management system and award scheme that promotes and acknowledges long-term, whole school action for the environment. 

Schools undertaking the programme work through seven themes, taking one theme at a time.  

The themes are: 

  • Litter & Waste 
  • Energy 
  • Water 
  • Travel 
  • Biodiversity 
  • Global Citizenship 
  • Climate Change 

Green-Schools Committee 

An integral part of the the Green-Schools programme is the formation of a Green-Schools Committee.  

The committee directs the operations of the school’s Green-Schools programme. 

It is composed of staff and students and sets in motion the steps to be taken in order to achieve a Green Flag for each of the themes. 

Our Litter & Waste Flag 

This is the first theme of the Green-Schools Programme.  

Our aim was to educate the school population on the effects of litter and waste on our school and our community. The theme aims to encourage a sense of personal pride and responsibility in tackling two visible issues in schools and communities 

Through the hard work of all involved we were awarded our Litter & Waste Flag in the 2019/20 academic year.
