Eco-Club secures prestigious Eco-Schools Green Flag
We are delighted to announce that St Simon Stock has been awarded an Eco-Schools Green Flag with Merit. This wonderful achievement for our school community reflects the amazing work achieved by our Eco-Committee over the last academic year.
The enthusiastic team of eager and committed volunteers worked tirelessly to complete an Environmental Review, create an Action Plan and embed environmental issues into a variety of curriculum areas, as well as run school-wide activities and initiatives to raise awareness and improve the school's existing environmental policy.
The congratulatory letter received with the award commented; "It was wonderful to see how completing your Environmental Review helped to raise the level of awareness in your school and helped your Eco-Committee to identify the issues and spot gaps in your school's existing environmental activity. But equally important is that it helped you to recognise the great work that you were already doing."
The letter went to give particular praise to the litter picks, beach clean and our wonderful new Eco-Garden stating that, "You’ve clearly embedded the ethos of the Eco-Schools programme far and wide in your school."
Finally, the letter commended the Eco-Committee team for their fabulous efforts; "I hope you and your Eco-Committee take great pride in your achievements, when listed it's almost astonishing how many there are... Everyone involved should be incredibly proud of the changes they have made."
Our Eco Club runs every Friday lunchtime with Mrs Lamberth, all are welcome to get involved.
