On Monday 24th November Paula Love from Eco Schools Scotland came to our school. She came because she was chosen to assess our school for its next green flag. All of the Eco committee showed her round the school grounds and she said that our school is very tidy and eco friendly and she would like to come again. Down in the hall we had a display set up so that she could see what we were doing in the school for learning about the environment. In the hall P1/2 had their own paper that they made in the classroom from recycled paper. P3/4 were doing the harvest assembly and learning about food miles and how we should buy local food. P5/6 were learning about the rainforest and palm oil and the things that have palm oil in them, and they also are making eco soaps. P7 did crofting and we did a lot of weeding and planting in the school raised beds and croft. When she had finished looking at our school she had to decide if we could get our next green flag. Then in the afternoon we had an assembly and Mrs Harrison said that we had earned our fifth green flag. Everyone in the school was so glad and now we can carry on being eco-friendly.
