As you know we have achieved Eco Schools status and the Green Flag Award. Team Green meet regularly to discuss Green issues in school. We met to vote for our name (Team Green) and to choose the winning poster for helping everyone in school to save water. Well done to Aaron in 2E whose poster is displayed in the toilets and classrooms. Alex’s poster (FSHB) is in all the staff areas. We have also met to choose our school Eco code. Information about our Eco School work is on the noticeboard outside Mrs. Ashley’s classroom.
