We are delighted to announce that our school has just obtained the prestigious Eco-School Green Flag Award. Congratulations to our amazing Eco-Committee headed by Ms Franca Boschi on this well-deserved success!
The Green Flag Award is an internationally recognised symbol for environmental excellence and we are extremely proud to have worked up to it by previously achieving Bronze and Silver awards.
Each school designs an approach according to its own unique motivations and concerns, builds projects based on the time and resources available and advances at its own pace.
We are extremely proud to share the main points highlighted by Eco-School in their assessment:
We love the range of activities that you and your Eco-Committee planned for delivery. The fact that they cover both indoor (a compost bin, class Energy Monitors, pen and battery recycling and creating a marine habitat display) and outdoor (planting a garden area with bulbs and plants, building a bug hotel and bird feeder and supporting both a Marine charity, a Bee charity and a local food bank) activities is excellent. Wow, what an ambitious list. It was also great to see accountability and monitoring and evaluation clearly marked in your Action Plan. Great work!
They also acknowledged the great work done linking environmental issues to a variety of curriculum areas.
We loved seeing the excellent examples of lesson PowerPoints, student’s work and photos of displays and activities. This is a great example of layering in sustainability and climate change into your studies. We loved reading about how you had worked with the Holland Park Ecological Centre to host environmental/wildlife ‘forest School’ sessions for the EY classes, as well as how you had incorporated learning about global issues not only into the Science Curriculum (most common one) in your school but also into other areas such as Art & Craft, ICT, English and Italian (of course). We loved the idea of your pupils ‘rewriting’ Dickens’ Christmas Carol with an Eco waste & pollution theme – (Don’t hear that often!).
Everyone involved should be incredibly proud of the results they have achieved: it shows passion, commitment and a desire to make a tangible impact. You truly are an inspiration!
