Green Flag Status                       

Following our last successful assessment in June 2012, this is the year we have to again invite the assessors into school to make sure we are still achieving Green Flag status. The ECO Committee has met regularly this session and have contributed to, and taken forward, the Action Plan.

 Guest Speaker

In January, Cathy Martin, East Dunbartonshire’s Litter Warden, spoke to the Upper School about where our waste goes when we bin it. We looked at the different types of bins we use, including recycling bins and learned about using our waste to power a factory!
