Green School

Over the years our school has worked very hard towards earning and maintaining the four Green Schools flags that we hold very proudly- LITTER AND WASTE, ENERGY, WATER and TRAVEL.

This year we are aiming to uphold these flags as well as setting our sights on the next flag- 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!
