St Chris has been awarded the prestigious Eco-Schools Green Flag!
St Chris has had a Green Eco Flag flying several times in its long history, but we sadly lost this status a few years ago.
Following an environmental review in January 2019 the St Chris Be Green team put together an action plan to reverse this situation, and last year we were awarded the Silver Award.
To gain Green Flag status we have had to show how pupils are learning about the ten Eco topics that Eco Schools focus on across the School and the curriculum, and to show how we were engaging the whole school community in Green activities.
The Be Green team have established crisp packet, battery and pen recycling, energy monitoring, litter picking and bulb planting as regular activities in the Junior School.
The Senior School came on board to help us take action on Climate Strike days, create colourful interactive displays and educate their peers on why we need to reduce our carbon emissions.
The Junior School students delivered their climate change speeches to the Senior School, followed by the Senior School students doing the same for the juniors.
The Eco Schools committee were so impressed with this flurry of Green activity at St Chris, that they have awarded us their prestigious Green Flag.
Today our elected Mini Officials from the Junior School, Alicia and Dylan, proudly raised our Green Flag to the cheers of the Be Green team.
However, it doesn’t end here! We will continue our quest for greener, better lives and a more environmentally friendly school community, and have exciting up and coming projects to embrace in the future.
