The Green Schools programme requires involvement from the whole school community and the wider community in order to protect the environment for future generations. We all play a part in recycling, saving energy and conserving water.
But for its successful implementation, a Green Schools Committee with representatives of pupils and teachers was elected to ensure we are doing everything we can to stay green. They are meeting at lunch break once a month to discuss all matters green.
Our school works very hard to create and keep different gardens located on the school grounds. Every year we organise a garden competition. Click on the button below to learn more about each garden.

What can we all do to stay green?
- Pick litter.
- Recycle by making items from old packaging.
- Throw fruit peels, used tea bags, pencil parings, weeds from the garden and all other compostable materials into a compost bin.
- Collect rainwater and use it to water flowers and vegetables.
- Put a plug in the sink when washing up and washing vegetables.
- Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth.
- Have a quick shower instead of a bath.
- Wait until the dishwasher/washing machine is full before running a cycle.
- Check for leaks and dripping taps and have them fixed immediately.
- Install a Little Hippo or other displacement devices in your cistern to help reduce the amount of water wasted when flushing the toilets.
- Put in push taps so save approximately three times more water than twist taps.
