Eco-Schools

More than 50% of schools across Bedford Borough have now signed up to the prestigious national eco-schools programme, which involves them working to follow sustainable principles in everyday school life. The programme has seen a flurry of local schools achieving recognition for their commitment to sustainability in recent months. Awards won by Bedford Borough schools recently include:

 

  • Elstow Lower School – were awarded their 2nd Green Flag
  • The Hills Lower School – were awarded their 1st Green Flag
  • Wilden Lower School - received ‘Bronze’ and ‘Silver’
  • Brickhill Lower School - received ‘Bronze’

 

 

Deputy Mayor, Cllr Charles Royden, will visit The Hills Lower School at 9am on Friday 10th June to attend the flag raising assembly in celebration of the school’s participation in the Low Carbon Schools Project within Bedford Borough.

 

Carol Humphreys, Assistant Head teacher at The Hills Lower School, said: “We worked hard to achieve our Green Flag status and we are delighted with the outcome. We planted our vegetable beds with lots of onions, cabbage, kale and peas and prepared our flower beds for new plants – everything is so green!”

 

The Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “I’ve come across many fantastic examples from our local schools of how the Eco-Schools programme has really enthused young pupils, while also making a real difference in reducing schools’ impact on the environment. Congratulations to all the schools who are in the programme and receiving well-deserved recognition, which I hope encourages others to sign up to becoming an Eco-School.”
