GREEN FLAG

Woodchurch High School recently retained its prestigious Green Flag award. The 120 Eco Reps and 15 members of the Go4Green committee lead school development on sustainability and it was 11 pupils from the Go4Green group who met with Lynn Struve, the Green Flag assessor from Eco Schools. They told her about the campaigns and competitions they have run on recycling, cycling to school and reducing energy consumption, and took her on a tour of the grounds including the farm, wind turbine and bike shed.

After the visit Lynn wrote: “This is an inspirational school that has generated an interest in farming and horticulture in other schools. The students have helped to create and deliver the Wirral Eco Schools convention and their ideas, enthusiasm and commitment have shaped the development and progress of eco schools across Wirral.”

Headteacher Rebekah Phillips said: “The Go4Green committee does a great job coming up with ideas to make the school more environmentally friendly and all pupils in the school have a commitment to the environment. I am delighted to hear that we have helped other local schools on their eco journey.”
