We are very pleased to announce that we have been successfully awarded the Eco Schools (Keep Wales tidy) Platinum award. This has been the culmination of 9 years work within the school, where we have been awarded, Bronze, Silver and Gold awards in the past. The awarding officer commented that:
"I am delighted to inform you that your application for Platinum Eco-Schools status was successful.
Many thanks for the time given by you, the staff and pupils during the recent visit. We were really pleased by the pupil and staff’s long-term and continued enthusiasm for the programme, and the recent excellent work carried out throughout the school" B Bromley - Keep Wales tidy
The award recognises the schools commitment to the programme in a number of key areas:
Health and Wellbeing
Litter and waste management
All of these areas have been investigated by the school Eco Committee and improvements have been made a continued process throughout. The Eco Committee is a thriving learner voice group within Caerleon and they have accepted the next Platinum challenge set by Eco Schools by looking at ways to increase biodiversity even more within the school grounds. Well done to everyone involved.
