Welcome to our school ECO page.....Eco Day tWednesday 23rd October.
We are proud to be an Eco School and have achieved Platinum status.
We are the only school in Prestatyn to have achieved this and we are very proud of our pupils and staff who have worked hard over the past 2 years (to see a list of schools look here https://www.keepwalestidy.cymru/our-schools). In Bodnant Community School we have held Green Days, walked through the year with Muscle Power Wednesday, encouraged and monitored whole school recycling, taken part in the RSPB Schools Bird Watch, improved our wellbeing by encouraging everyone to have healthy lunchboxes and yoga sessions, made full use of our school grounds for Forest Schools and outdoor learning and are now developing a new garden and planting area.
What is Eco-Schools?
Eco-Schools is an international environmental education programme developed by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) in 1994 and run in Wales by Keep Wales Tidy.
Eco-Schools is one of a kind – it’s student led which means the Eco Council meet regularly to set targets and get involved in making our school and local community a better place.
It’s designed to empower and inspire young people to make positive environmental changes to their school and wider community, while building on their key skills, including numeracy and literacy, and encompassing Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship.
Schools achieve Platinum status once they have been awarded the Green Flag four times – demonstrating their long-term commitment to environmental education, student involvement and sustainability. Platinum schools are ranked amongst the best in the world on the Eco-Schools programme.
