Thank you all for another fantastically successful year for Eco-Schools. This month saw the culmination of our Green Flag assessments for 2018/19, well done to all the schools that achieved Green Flag this year and thanks to all our brilliant assessors for all the vital work you do for us.

We’d like to welcome Georgina Black to the Eco-Schools team she will be our new Eco-Schools Officer organising Green Flags. Georgina was in her Eco-Committee when at Glenlola Grammar school in Bangor when they received their first Green Flag. She has since received a First Class Honours in Politics, Philosophy and Economics from QUB. She has worked on various conservation projects with TCV and RSPB and keeps bees and a small flock of sheep at home.

We wish you all a fantastic summer break but before you head off read the round up below and reflect on all your own successes this year too!

We’d like to wish our hard working Eco-Schools Officer, Cathy, all the best as she heads off on maternity leave later in June.

We hope you all had a great Easter break! As we launch into the final term for this school year we hope you are all thinking about getting outside for a few lessons, planting up your gardens, picking up litter, looking out for wildlife and stretching your legs with a walk to school. There are lots of ideas highlighted below for you to get involved in. We are in full Green Flag assessment swing now for this last term and we ask you to bear with us as we organise your assessments during this very busy time!

March's newsletter is now up and ready to be viewed!

We can’t believe the Teachers Conference is over for another year - what a great day it was! Thanks to all the schools that attended and helped out on the day. Read all about it and our exciting new Marine topic below. Thanks also to all the schools who have submitted Green Flag applications before the deadline – we will be working hard to arrange your assessment before the end of the school year but this can take some time to organise so bear with us please. Applications are still welcome but might not be assessed this year at this point.
