Dunoon Primary had been awarded it’s third Green Flag. Below is an extract from the letter Dunoon Primary received by Mrs Senga Wakefield, who is the leader of our Eco Committee from Eco-Schools Scotland/Keeping Scotland Beautiful.
Dunoon Primary were congratulated for a great whole-school effort in renewing their Green Flag status, during which they monitored progress well and shared their successes with the wider community via the school blog and newsletter. The Eco Committee were very impressed with community litter picking activities and especially the schools sterling work to clean and adopt Westbay Beach, giving a great example to our neighbours of our commitment to keeping the local environment tidy and welcoming. Clearly, Eco is thoroughly integrated into the curriculum and calendar via our focus on Outdoor Learning, our participation in the Beach School initiative and John Muir Award, and events such as Active Health Week. You have also taken pupil learning outwith the campus on your visits to Benmore Outdoor Centre and through your gardening work at the local nursing home, and have engaged the support of useful partners like the GRAB and Robertson Trusts and the Marine Conservation Society. Fantastic work, everyone!
