Our school is an ECO school and with the help of our community, parents, Eco Council and staff we secured our silver award in 2016.
These are some of the things we have achieved to date:
- our committee has conducted an audit of the school to see where we could improve and to see what we are doing well already;
- our committee have presented their ideas about being an ECO school to get the rest of the students on board;
- we have taken part in Energy Month, Switch off Fortnight and we have had a spare textiles collection, which earned the school lots of great science equipment; and
- our parents are involved and have supported our staff in creating an exciting outdoor environment, including our wonderful wildlife area.
We are now working towards obtaining the prestigious Green Flag Award.
