Eco-Schools is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world, operated internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). Eco-Schools supports schools in our work with Learning for Sustainability and helps ensure our children and young people are equipped with skills that they need for the future.
The Eco-Warriors have worked extremely hard to raise awareness and implement eco-initiatives across the school. We have focused our work on litter, waste minimisation and food waste of the ten topics of Eco-Schools. The Eco-Warriors have also linked our action plan to UN Sustainable Development Goal 12 – ‘Responsible production& consumption’ which linked to the three topics above. We registered as an Eco-School with Tereza, Educational centre in 2016 and this is our first award.
Three ECO inspectors visited the school to evaluate our progress towards achieving the green flag for Eco-Schools. Two members of the Eco-Council (Sophia and Nela) gave the visitors an informative tour around the school and highlighted all the areas where we are focussing on eco initiatives.
