Inveraray Primary School was the first school in Argyll and Bute to gain Green Flag status as an Eco School back in 2003. We are pleased to share the good news that we have once again retained our Green Flag status through our Crofting and Kenyan Connections work which includes the whole school and the nursery.
The Assessment Report stated:
Congratulations to all at Inveraray Primary for their hard work in renewing the school’s Green Flag status. I was particularly interested to read of your fantastic Kenyan Connections’ project which has grown out of your Crofting Connections work. This is a wonderful link with Lomayana Primary, and the opportunities it has given your young people to be involved in looking at comparative environmental conditions and food production is a great example of Global Citizenship and Learning for Sustainability in action. Well done, too, for the thorough way in which Eco is integrated into the school’s curriculum and calendar, through events like your Safari night and your participation in National Healthy Eating Week. I am sure you will enjoy exploring the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Great work everyone!
We are very proud of our achievement and look forward to looking more closely at the Sustainable Development Goals.
