Green Flag application
We recently submitted our application to achieve our Eco Green Flag. Over the past few years we have worked extremely hard to reach the required high standard. The assessment date has not yet been confirmed but will probably be at the end of May.
To help with our application:-
- Please support Get Moving in May by walking, even part of the journey to school.
- Also support the official Walk to School Week- Monday 20th to Friday 31st May.
- Remember to send a healthy break and a refillable bottle of water daily.
Play-ground games and Skip-a-thon
Soon the pupils will be asking parents, grandparents and other family members about the types of games they played when they were at school. The School Council and Eco-Committee hope to run a Skip-a-thon in June. With a little help we can encourage the pupils to become more interested in old fashioned games and especially skipping. Our sponsored events have been very successful over the past few years and we look forward to your continued support.
Thank-you The Eco Committee
