2nd Green Flag

We have just heard the fabulous news that we have been awarded our second Green Flag for our work in Learning for Sustainability. The panel were particularly impressed by the action taken by all classes in areas of their choice including the beach clean, campaigning at fast food restaurants about food and packaging waste and our visit and work with a local food bank. Well done to the Eco Committee for putting together our successful application and a special thank you to Mrs Latimer for her wonderful work.

Cabinet Minister’s Visit

Yesterday we welcomed the Cabinet Secretary for the Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform, Roseanna Cunningham to the school. Our school had been chosen because of our Learning for Sustainability work and she met a group of children who spoke so passionately and enthusisatically about the work they are doing. You might have even spotted us on BBC Reporting Scotland. We are so proud of the work the children are involved in and how well they represented our school. A big ‘thank you’ also to Mrs Latimer for the wonderful LfS work she does with the children.
