Active Kids Zone

We are working towards our ninth Green Flag:
Global Citizenship, Food and Bio diversity.

We pride ourselves on being a Green School and we have  been awarded  eight green flags to date. Our school is currently working towards a ninth green flag - Global Citizenship, Food and Biodiversity. Classes throughout the school have been planting fruit and vegetables over the last two years. Some vegetables have been planted indoors ready for outdoor planting in late spring.  The Green School's committee are an integral part of the process in working towards the flag guided by the Green School's co-ordinator.  The Green Commitee have been busy collecting and graphing data on Food and Biodiversity. The  committee conducted a slogan competition open to pupils from 3rd to 6th. Our pupils have undertaken extensive project work in the area of  Protecting Pollinators.




Our Green School Committee
Our Green Schools committee meet on a monthly basis and is normally made up of pupils from 3rd to 6th class.
This year and last year the committee consists of the pupils in sixth class. Over the last two years the committee has increased the number of raised beds in the school and has taken a great interest in planting fruit, vegetables and creating a wild flower garden. The pupils have sampled their own produce in soup an other recipes.
