Look here to find out about our Eco
School project ......
Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on
their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these
principles into the heart of school life.
Here you can see children working hard to make the school grounds as
eco friendly as possible. If you click on the picture below
you will be able to see what the children have been doing in other
areas of the school grounds.
Children are the driving force behind Eco-Schools - they lead the
eco-committee and help carry out an audit to assess the environmental
performance of their school. Through consultation with the rest of the
school and the wider community it is the pupils that decide which
environmental themes they want to address and how they are going to do
it. Measuring and monitoring is an integral part of the Eco-Schools
programme, providing schools with all the evidence they need to really
shout about their environmental success.
Schools work towards gaining one of three awards - Bronze, Silver and
the prestigious Green Flag award, which symbolises excellence in the
field of environmental activity. Here at Harmondsworth we have achieved
the Silver Award.
