What is Eco School?
Most young people care deeply about environmental issues, and wish to make a positive change in the environment around them. The Eco Schools Programme provides an ideal way for fostering environmental awareness in the entire school in a way that links to many curriculum subjects.
Carr Primary School have celebrated 4 Green Flag achievements over recent years. In 2021-22 we aim to achieve our fifth green flag.
2021 - 2022
2020 - 2021
Unfortunately due to the Covid 19 pandemic meeting together and completing eco activities was difficult. During home learning we investigated
✅ Outdoor Learning
✅ Tree identification
✅ GB Bird Watching Week
2019 - 2020
Eco School will be selling used uniforms at the Beetle Drive and during the week commencing 21st October 2019. Please come along to grab a bargain and shop environmentally friendly.
Carr Primary are delighted to have been successful in obtaining a grant to further develop our outdoor learning. Dobbies Helping Communities Grow Grant of £200 has enabled us to buy lots of equipment and will help with lots of future projects.
Sept - 2019 Every child got the opportunity to plant a daffodil bulb outside our school gates. The display should be beautiful in Spring and encourage more bees 🐝 and insects to our school.
Sept 2019 - This year we are collecting crisp bags and treat packaging which cannot at the moment be recycled in our school bins. Terra Cycle have pledged to donate money to the Kicks Count Charity when packaging is sent to their recycling company. A double winner for charity and the environment. Feel free to send any items listed below into school to be added to our collection.
Carr Primary School has been awarded the prestigious Eco School Green Flag by the environmental charity Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful. This internationally recognised flag is the highest achievement given by Eco-Schools and symbolises excellence in the field of environmental activity. We are delighted to achieve this recognition for all our hard work in this area. Lets try and get our fourth flag!!!
