Green Schools is an international environmental education programme that promotes long-term whole school action for the environment. The aim of Green Schools is to increase students’ awareness of environmental issues and to transfer this knowledge into positive environmental action in the school and also in the wider environment.
The Green Schools committee is open to all students who are committed and concerned about their environment and they are currently working hard to raise awareness of the importance of protecting our environment for future generations within our school community.
Our Green School Code is “If we go Green our school will be clean
