Green School Visit for the 5th Flag – Biodiversity

Deidre Cox visited us on Wednesday 21st March before we submitted our application for the 5th Green School Flag.

This flag looks at Biodiversity focusing on the variety of habitats in the school grounds and creating new habitats where possible. She was very impressed with all the hard work that has been going on. We are quietly optimistic.
