Green School

Over the years our school has worked very hard towards earning and maintaining the Green Schools flags that we hold very proudly- LITTER AND WASTE, ENERGY, WATER and TRAVEL. Last year we were received our fifth flag for BIODIVERSITY.

We would like to thank all the teachers, students and parents alike that have helped along the way and hope that you will continue with us on our Green Schools Journey.

Stay tuned here for Green Schools updates!
