Green- Schools News
St Paul’s is a Green-School and this year we are busy working towards our sixth Green-Schools flag, “Global Citizenship, Litter and Waste”. This theme enables us to see how our work on the Green-Schools programme so far positively influences people around the world and allows us to revise our Litter and Waste theme. We are learning about children from different countries around the world and are trying to reduce, reuse and recycle our litter and waste as much as we can in school.
Meet the Green Team – We meet each month to talk about what is happening with Green-Schools and we decide what information we need to tell our classmates. It also gives us a chance to share our ideas.
The Greens-Schools board keeps the boys and girls informed about what is happening with the Green-Schools programme.
