Cullivoe Primary School has just received their sixth Eco Schools Green Flag Award from environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful.
The award recognises the school’s commitment to Learning for Sustainability and is an internationally recognised accreditation for excellence in sustainable education.
Eco-Schools Scotland aims to make environmental awareness and action an intrinsic part of the life and ethos of all schools.
It also provides a framework to engage the wider school community in action and support aligned with the purposes of Curriculum for Excellence and Learning for Sustainability.
Eco-Schools is one of five programmes operated internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education, delivered in Scotland by Keep Scotland Beautiful, with the support of the Scottish Government.
Dunrossness and Sandness Primary Schools also currently hold Eco Schools Green Flag Awards, with other local schools also working towards gaining awards.
Claire Lawson, Headteacher at Cullivoe Primary School said:
“Over the past two years we have been working on improving our school grounds, and learning more about types of energy and why energy prices have risen.
“This is alongside our work on climate action which is so important at this time.
“Being awarded our sixth Green Flag is a huge achievement for our school and we will be celebrating our success with our families and local community.”
