Mountnorris P.S.

Eco School

At Mountnorris PS we take a keen interest in our environment. We encourage the children to look after the world which God has created. To this end, we were awarded our Green Flag in March 2014 and with hard work and dedication, we received our second green flag in June 2016.

We have recycling bins in every classroom, we make our own compost from our fruit and veg scraps and are able to use the compost in our pupil -led and planned vegetable plot.   In addition to this we also regularly contribute to Cash for Clobber.

We have bat boxes, bird boxes, insect hotel and bird tables; all of which we hope will increase biodiversity in our school grounds.

We also have raised beds in which we grow our own produce such as rhubarb, lettuce and carrots.  When our rhubarb is ready, we pick it and create rhubarb crumbles with the help of parents and sell these in school.
