Green Schools

The green schools programme involves the whole school and so every child and staff member in the school plays their part in recycling, saving energy and conserving water. But for its successful implementation a Green Schools Committee with representatives of pupils and teachers was elected to ensure we are doing everything we can to stay green. They are meeting at lunch break once a month to discuss all matters green.

Our Green Flag Themes
6th Green Flag 2019: Global Citizenship
5th Green Flag 2016: Bio-diversity
4th Green Flag 2014: Transport
3rd Green Flag 2012: Water conservation
2nd Green Flag 2010: Energy
1st Green Flag 2008: Waste

The Green Schools programme requires involvement from the whole school community and the wider community in order to protect the environment for future generations.

What can we all do to stay green?

  • Pick litter.
  • Recycle by making items from old packaging.
  • Throw fruit peels, used tea bags, pencil parings, weeds from the garden and all other compostable materials into a compost bin.
  • Collect rainwater and use it to water flowers and vegetables.
  • Put a plug in the sink when washing up and washing vegetables.
  • Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth.
  • Have a quick shower instead of a bath.
  • Wait until the dishwasher/washing machine is full before running a cycle.
  • Check for leaks and dripping taps and have them fixed immediately.
  • Install a Little Hippo or other displacement device in your cistern to help reduce the amount of water wasted when flushing the toilets.
  • Put in push taps so save approximately three times more water than twist taps.
