Green Flag Eco Award

 

Congratulations to pupils and staff at Beaton Road and Kingarth Street who have successfully renewed the school's Eco-Schools Green Flag Award status.

The school community has worked over the 2017/18 academic year (and during the school holidays) to maintain this prestigious award and now both green flags will continue to fly at the Primary and Secondary campuses.

The volunteers have been working to control litter, reduce waste and promote healthy lifestyles throughout the school. During Community Action Week 2017, S3 pupils rolled up their sleeves at Beaton Road, transforming a disused piece of land into an exciting place to plant and grow fresh vegetables for the wider School community. 

In the classroom, the Primary pupils have been studying “Farm to Fork” and the Senior pupils have been focusing on Global Education, hosting educational events, including Day of Dance, Fairtrade Fortnight, a craft fair and Stress-Free week. They also organised a trip to the local recycling centre.

Promoting Fairtrade, the school has established strong links with a number of partner schools both at home and overseas. The S3 pupils took part in a beach clean recently and have been supporting local charities including the Queen’s Park Govanhill Parish Church Foodbank, Nets for Life and Amnesty International. 

Very well done to all involved for the hard work in obtaining this outstanding achievement.
