Hello from the Parklands Eco Team!
We are a small, friendly group of parents, staff and pupils who lead activities within the school to promote environmental issues and ‘being green’.
In 2011 we were awarded our first Eco-Schools Green Flag for our hard work. We earned our second one in 2014. We take part in many national initiatives such as Feed the Birds Day, Switch-Off Fortnight and Waste Week as well as ongoing efforts in school to improve recycling, keep our campus litter-free and learn about wildlife in our gardens.
The highlight of the year is our annual Green Day. In June 2015, we made our very own yarn bomb along the school fence and in 2014 we learnt all about British wildlife and had lots of fun while making a promise to 'look after our patch'. Check out our fab patchwork hanging in the Family Room!
The pages below outline exactly what we have done in order to achieve our Green Flag award across lots of different areas! Please have a look!
