We congragulat the pupils and staff of St Cynoc’s National School who was awarded a green flag this week for litter and waste management, organised by the 6th class pupils and their teacher Ms. Kelly.
Green-Schools, known internationally as Eco-Schools, is an international environmental education programme, environmental management system and award scheme that promotes and acknowledges long-term, whole school action for the environment
Litter and Waste
Green-Schools covers many different aspects of the environment. Litter and waste is chosen as the first theme because:
- The subject is particularly relevant to and part of the curriculum in both primary and secondary schools
- Litter is a visible problem; both students and the local community will notice improvements in the appearance and image of the school.
- It is a good starting point for encouraging a sense of personal pride and responsibility.
