We achieved our BRONZE Eco-Schools Award 1

The Eco Team is  a group of children, led by Ms Ejgierd, who take on several projects throughout the year, all of which help the school remain environmentally friendly.

The team from last year helped us achieve our Bronze Award. 

 

We are currently in a process of forming a new team who will help us achieve our Silver Award.
