Here are some of us at Coleg Cambria with the team of joinery instructors inspecting the Outdoor Classroom being built.

We can’t wait to start using our new classroom. Some classes have already started using it to learn about the outdoors.

 

We recently carried out an Environmental Review. By clicking on this link you can read a summary of what we found out:

After carrying out the Environmental Review we were able to decide on points we needed to look into and then we put together an Action Plan. If you click on the link below you can see our Action Plan:

 Hot off the press!!!

We are delighted to announce that our application for the Eco Schools Third Green Flag Award was successful.

The award has been given to the school as the Assessor noted a wealth of information and baseline data collected for the various action points during our highly successful Eco Week. Both literacy and Numeracy were incorporated into the yearly projects and the school has established a portfolio of evidence demonstrating ESDGC in a practical and purposeful way.

We are now planning for the next application in two years time in order to meet the criteria for Platinum status.

Watch this space….??

We are very grateful to Ms Catrin Hughes Education Officer for Keep Wales Tidy and to our dedicated Eco Team.

Congratulations

Eco Committee (The Full Version)

We have worked hard all year towards gaining our third Green Flag.

In April we held a ‘Green Week’ in school where every class throughout the school was involved in ‘green’ activities. We all collected lots of information which you can see in our portfolio which is in the school foyer.

During our last few weeks in school during the Summer Term, some members of the Eco Committee have been working hard during their lunchtimes to prepare a powerpoint presentation about our ‘Green Week’ for our Friday Assembly so the whole school could see what everyone had been doing. The children prepared this presentation on their own with no help from an adult!

Catrin from Keep Wales Tidy came in to see the presentation and to discuss what we’d been doing. This was part of our work towards the third Green Flag. We are also going to be speaking to the School Governors about what we’ve been up to and will be showing them our presentation at the end of term. We’ve got our fingers crossed in the hope that we’ve done enough to earn our third Green Flag.
