The most important outcome was reviewing the results of our whole school class votes on Gourdon School’s Eco Priorities. This year, the children have voted to focus on Biodiversity and Food in addition to the national priority of Litter.
The Committee is keen to work with all members of our community. If you would like to become involved with our meetings and activities, we would love to hear from you.
Our Eco-groups meet every Tuesday at 1.30pm to 2.30pm. If you would like to support any of our groups or lend a hand with some of the activities , we love to hear from you.
Gourdon School is an Eco School – Environmental awareness and action are an intrinsic part of the life and ethos of our school community. We are part of the Eco-schools programme – an international initiative designed to encourage whole school action for the environment. We are currently working towards the green flag which is the top level of award in the programme. It is a recognised award scheme that accredits schools who make a commitment to continuously improve their environmental performance.
The ‘Rag Bag’ recycling scheme has been developed to provide regular fundraising for schools and nurseries in Scotland.
We have a collection bin on site and is regularly uplifted.
