Congratulations to South Shore Academy which has been given Eco-School status.
The Eco-Schools Programme is a pupil-led, hands-on learning programme that gets the whole school and the wider community involved in exciting environmental projects.
The students and staff at South Shore have worked very hard to become a registered Eco-School, creating a committee, carrying out reviews, building an action plan with curriculum links that involves everyone, and applying robust measuring, monitoring and evaluation systems. There is a seven-step process to complete in order to be recognised as an Eco-School and South Shore pupils now join millions of others from 68 countries in creating change for the benefit of future generations.
Eco-Schools empowers pupils, raises environmental awareness, improves the school environment and also creates financial savings for schools. It engages the wider local community, links to the curriculum and can help deliver Ofsted requirements.
A team of South Shore students will be volunteering their time to work on a number of projects to help support the environment and to also work on the action plan of targets as well as review all Eco based topics to gain the Bronze Green Flag award.
A great initiative.
