Congratulations Everyone!

22nd Jun 2020

Woods Primary School has been awarded a prestigious Eco-Schools Green Flag for the third time by the environmental charity Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful.

The Eco-Schools Programme is the world’s largest Environmental Education programme and aims to make environmental awareness and action an intrinsic part of the life and ethos of a school.  Its participatory approach and combination of learning and action makes it an ideal way for schools to begin improving the environments of schools and their local communities.  Eco-Schools work through a simple seven-step process resulting in the programme becoming central to the school's ethos. Schools can choose from ten eco-topics ranging from litter and waste to energy, biodiversity and transport to name a few.

The internationally recognised Green Flag is this highest award given to Eco-Schools and symbolises excellence in the field of environmental activity.  Woods Primary School are proud to receive a new ECO Green Flag in recognition of the great work of everyone in our school community led by our hard working ECO Committee.  We especially want to thank all of our families and pupils for their support in our reduce single use plastic campaign this year and our recycling work.  We also want to thank Karen Brown from the Mid Ulster Council for all of her support and encouragement along the way!  Excellent work ECO Committee 2020!  Keep up the great work everyone.
