Hoisting the Green Flag

On Wednesday 13 July we held a special ceremony in order to celebrate being awarded with our third Green Flag. The Green Flag assessment was carried out at the end of May and is the highest Eco Schools Award. The assessor Lynn Struve spent a half day in school speaking with the Eco Committee, having a tour of the school s eco features and looking at evidence of eco work across the curriculum. She found out how we deal with the eight eco themes, such as energy, waste, water, biodiversity and transport.

The Eco Committee, Year 8 and 9 Eco Reps, Ms Phillips, Ms Oldham and Lynn Struve all attended the ceremony, which took place outside in the sunshine (fortunate). There were short speeches by Ben, Luke and Lynn, and the flag was then hoisted by Hannah and Ellesia to a wonderful fanfare played by Scott.
