The pupils and staff of St. Paul’s are delighted to be a Green School. This makes us part of a fantastic club of environmentally friendly schools all over the world. We have three green flags flying proudly at our school gates.

These were awarded for the following themes:

  • Litter & Waste
  • Energy
  • Water

In September 2015 we began working towards our travel flag. Each theme runs over a two year programme. The aim of the travel flag is to encourage pupils, teachers and parents to travel to and from school in a sustainable, green way. These include walking, scooting, cycling, car-pooling and park & stride.

Our Fit Feet Friday will be relaunched again in just a few short weeks and this year we will be adding a competitive edge with the Golden Boot award being introduced. Karen Moore is the green school officer who helps us with the travel theme. Karen visits the school regularly and has facilitated lots of fun and educational workshops such as Scooter skills, Bike rodeo, Dr.Bike and Eco-Detective walks to explore our local area. We look forward to lots more fun activities with Karen as we embark on the second year of our travel adventures!

The Green school committee welcomes some new committee members from third class this year and will continue to plan and take action in order to encourage us all to leave the cars at home and “Be Clean, Travel green!!” Check back regularly for more updates and Green School news as it happens.
