We are currently working on our 5th Green Flag. Ms Lord and Ms Rushe have been very busy in recent weeks. We put up a squirrel feeder to encourage squirrels in. Ms Lord sowed wildflower seeds in 3 of the 4 raised beds. These will attract butterflies and bees into our garden in summer. We also have bluebell and hyacinth bulbs planted. Crocus bulbs have been planted along the back of the garden. The fourth raised bed is for acid loving plants like heathers. This represents bogland habitats. We have placed birdbaths along the fence for the birds and also to provide a drink for other creatures.Trees and plants around the perimeter of the school grounds have been named and recorded. We have perspex birdfeeders on classroom windows so that the children and staff can get to see birds up close. Ms Rushe is making plans for a wildlife display at the moment. More to come as year goes on.
Ms. Lord, Ms Rushe and the Green Schools team have successfully achieved the fifth green flag for the school. Well done to all for their participation. We had a great response from the pupils helping with biodiversity in our school community.
Some improvements so far.....
The water meter is checked every week to measure usage.
Hippo bags have been installed in all the toilets
We have an efficient rain harvesting system in the new build of the school
Water usage has decreased in the classrooms as pupils are taking the necessary steps to conserve water.
