Congratulations to Mearns Castle on achieving the Eco Schools Green Flag- a prestigious international award!
This would not have been possible without the whole school working together. A special thanks to all the pupils who helped on the day with the assessors visit especially the eco committee who guided the assessors through their visit.
Look out for the Green Flag flying outside the school very soon!
S2 Pupils will be involved in an Environmental Project in order to help the school achieve its Green Flag.
Part of this Interdisciplinary event will involve pupils using materials that can be recycled (Items you would put in your recycling bin at home). In order to have enough materials pupils are asked to bring in materials that can be recycled such as cereal boxes, kitchen roll tubes, plastic containers (providing they are washed before they are brought into school).
House points are up for grabs so please make sure you bring in materials to help your house. The event will take place on the 13th October so ensure items are brought to Mr Hutchison before the 10th October.
If you have any questions please speak with Miss Ferguson or Mr Hutchison.
‘Bin it to Win it’ is back! Members of the Eco project will be selecting random bins on random days of the week to supervise. They will select a number e.g. 10 and if you are the 10th person to put your rubbish in the bin while it is being supervised you will win a queue jump for you and a friend as well as 5 house points. Remember, you have to BIN IT TO WIN IT!
