Green Schools 01/12/20

Divine Word school is proud to be a Green School. We received our 6th Green Flag in May 2016. This 6th flag was for Global Citizenship – Litter and Waste . We have worked hard to achieve these awards over the last few years, by:

Recycling batteries, mobile phones and ink cartridges
Using hand-towels instead of paper towels to dry our hands
Turning off lights and electrical appliances when not needed
Not wasting water
Hippo bags in all toilet cisterns
Using reusable lunch and drink containers
Taking part in recycling clothes – Fill the Van Day
Keeping our school litter free
Taking part in a walk and cycle to school programme WOW, COW
Saving paper when photocopying
Running a textbook loan scheme
Text a Parent initiative

Our green School Committee organises annual Recycling competitions and events. We are always delighted to welcome suggestions for how to make our school ‘greener’ and look forward to hearing yours!
