Cooley Primary School has achieved its green flag status for the fourth time. The school has an eco-committee made up of pupils from classes throughout the school who work alongside teachers Mrs Hazel Clements and Mrs Julie Mitchell, the eco co-ordinators. The school has put the spotlight in biodiversity, waste and energy over the past two years.
The eco-assessors recently called at the school to look at the environmental work being carried out and were duly impressed. Assessors Anthea Owens and Lynn Greer said, "Cooley is an outstanding example of an eco-school. The members of the eco-committee were brimming with enthusiasm and their knowledge of the environment was exemplary."
Before leaving they handed over the school's latest eco flag to Mrs Hazel Clements and the eco-committee who were delighted to receive it.
