Here is our journey to ECO SCHOOL STATUS
First Green Flag
St Fergus Primary are proud owners of a coveted Green Flag from the Eco-Schools Organisation. We are the first primary school in Renfrewshire to achieve Eco-Schools status! This award is due to a lot of hard work from our Health Committee and the ongoing commitment of the school in promoting healthy lifestyles.
As an Eco-School, we recycle wherever possible. We send paper to be recycled at the Linwood Recycling Centre. We recycle old ink cartridges and we also recycle our fruit. At 2.30pm each day the Fruit Monitors collect fruit cores and peelings from each class and deposit them in the Green Bins. This allows the waste to break down and enrich the soil in our gardens. The boys take their jobs very seriously and are very conscientious. Thank you boys!
Litter is a problem everywhere in society. It is the school’s intension to seriously address this issue in the coming months. In order that the appearance of our own grounds is as attractive as possible, new litter monitors have been picked from the upper primaries. Each month litter will be counted to measure improvement. However, our children have responded so well there may wellbe very little litter to count!
