Seaview Primary School, Glenarm

We are now a Green Flag School!

30th May 2018

The future is not just bright for Seaview,  it’s green!

Environmentally friendly pupils from Seaview have managed to attain a coveted Eco-Schools Green Flag!

The pupils have been working hard to transform their school’s daily routine into one that benefits the environment and improves the school’s outside space.

 Eco-Schools asks schools to set up a committee involving pupils from all years. They set to work on a school audit that highlights areas of the school that could be made more environmentally friendly. The Eco-Committee then creates an action plan to help the pupils deliver big changes, whilst also involving the whole school and spreading eco-messages into the local community. 

Green Flag Award is something that the whole school and its surrounding community can be proud of. Each pupil will be able to take away some degree of satisfaction in the knowledge that their actions have significantly altered their local and global environment. It has been a fantastic initiative for all involved, however it is by no means over, as the greater challenge is to maintain what we have achieved so far and look towards ways of improving even further.

The benefits of working towards an award such as the Green Flag extend beyond the improvement of the environmental quality of the school. The programme gives pupils a sense of responsibility and pride in what they have achieved. With this comes the hope that pupils will continue this behaviour in the wider community and for the rest of their lives.

Well done Seaview!
