Holbrook’s Eco-schools team were delighted to be awarded their second Green Flag recently.
The assessor was impressed with both the hard work that had gone into the application but also the tour he was taken on by the committee. He commented: “Welcome done Holbrook Primary School! This is a very strong application and Holbrook Primary School’s second Green Flag is very well deserved. The eco-reps are well informed, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and articulate and they are well supported by teaching staff, governors and parents. Education and action for sustainability are clearly key aspects of Holbrook’s school’s values and ethos”.
Headteacher, Mr Ian Holmes, said, “Eco-matters are an important part of the Holbrook curriculum for both staff and children and I am delighted that our Eco-team’s hard work has been recognised by this national award for a second time.”
The team are already looking forward to planning new projects.
