Green Schools Committee

Our Green Schools Committee do a lot of work to keep our school clean and tidy.

We put on competitions and events to get everyone aware of recycling and keeping the school and local environment clean. One girl came up with a very good slogan in sixth class ‘Live Green, Live Better, One Planet, One Chance’ and now that is our Green School’s motto.

Recently, our school got our third green flag.
