Beaudesert Awarded Eco-Schools Green Flag
…WE DID IT!! We’ve got our Green Flag!
Over the summer, we received our Green Flag award from the Eco-Schools initiative! This is an international education programme which encourages children to get involved in promoting environmental awareness in their schools and communities.
Last year, our Prep School Eco-Commitee and Pre-Prep Eco-Club conducted an environmental review and compiled an action plan to improve the School’s green credentials. Focusing on biodiversity, litter and waste, children and staff organised a host of different activities to support their application for a Green Flag. They hosted a plant and cake sale, constructed and installed bird boxes, conducted litter picks, and organised food surveys and assessments with catering staff. And all that hard work was worth it!
The flag was presented in assembly on Wednesday morning, and is now flying proudly on our Croquet Lawn. However, there is no rest for our Eco-Committee. The children are busy planning activities for the coming year to renew our application for next year, and they are on the hunt for new members… Children should get in touch with Mrs Waters if they would like to join the team this year.
