Europa is an Eco School

We got some happy news this week! Our application to be an Eco School was accepted (it must be renewed each year) and this year we got the Eco School green flag with merit! 

A huge well done and congratulations to the Eco Club and all the children who have been involved in the school’s sustainability projects this year.  We would also like to thank the amazing work of Stephanie Harries, who is the driving force behind this initiative.

The flag is up! 

Read some of the amazing feedback from Eco-School on our application

It’s great to see that you had such a group of eager, enthusiastic volunteers. Your Action Plan shows that your Eco-Committee have carefully considered how they can involve their entire school in their planned Eco-Schools’ activities to achieve maximum impacts and raise awareness amongst their school community. We love the range of activities that you and your Eco-Committee planned for delivery. The fact that they cover both indoor (reducing single-use plastics and the Big Plastic Count, recycling boxes in every class, recycling pens & glue sticks, and making a film of your Hope, Care & Community drama) and outdoor (your ‘Young Climate Scientists’ litter reducing project) activities is excellent.  Your Curriculum Link examples are imaginative, practical and fun, making environmental education accessible and engaging, well done! We’re really impressed at how you’ve linked environmental issues to a variety of curriculum areas. We loved reading about how you had incorporated learning about global issues not only into the Geography and Science Curriculum (most common ones) in your school, but also into other areas such as Drama, Art and even ICT. Great work!  Congratulations to everyone for the great work you have managed to do, earning your Green Flag with Merit in style. You should all be very proud of your work and the application you have submitted!Eco Schools
