As a Catholic school, we take our responsibility for looking after the planet that God created very seriously and we are passionate about living our mission statement to grow in faith and love and become great people who make a difference in our world. As an Eco Committee, we feel that we are able to make a big difference and Eco Schools England agree:
We are now a Green Flag Eco School!
Meet this year’s Eco Committee:
Eco Code and Song:
Our Eco code, Eco song, minutes and suggestions folder can be found on our Eco board in the main school hall.
We organise and lead lead Eco Assemblies so that we can let the rest of the school know important information about the environment that we have found out, and let them know how they can help us and the planet.
