Today Mearns Castle was awarded the 1,500th Scottish Eco-Schools Green Flag.
The flag was raised today by Scottish Government Minister for Learning, Science and Scotland’s Languages, Dr Alasdair Allan MSP.
Mr Smith said at the ceremony ‘We are very proud to receive our green flag and in particular to be the recipient of 1,500th in Scotland. Our school and the schools who have received flags before us have shown commitment and determination in being more environmentally friendly in our actions.
‘The Green Flag and Eco-Schools initiative and the great deal of work carried out in schools are helping to change attitudes towards the environment and you can see new generations coming through who care more and do more for their local and global environment. I’m very proud of Mearns Castle’s achievements and of the pupils and staff who have worked so hard to gain our school the 1,500th Green Flag’.
