MOWBRAY APPOINTED ECO-SCHOOLS AMBASSADOR
January 30th, 2015
Mowbray has been selected as just one of nine schools in England to hold the prestigious role of Eco-Schools Ambassador reflecting the considerable work undertaken by our pupils and staff which have had benefits not just within our school community, but also our work with a Special School in Kenya.
Each year, Eco-Schools, which is the largest Education for Sustainability programme in the world and is run in England by Keep Britain Tidy, chooses exceptional schools to represent their programme and encourage new schools to join. Schools hold the role for two years, and must have held the Eco-Schools Green Flag award for four consecutive years to be eligible to apply for the role.
Eco-Schools Ambassadors are expected to ‘go that extra mile to demonstrate that sustainability is core to the schools culture’, as well as show ‘inspirational leadership and an initiative approach to working towards the Eco-Schools programme, as well as helping other schools to adopt the Eco-Schools framework.’
We will continue to rise to that challenge and offer our special thanks to Lucy Wallace who has driven this project with such enthusiasm and to everyone who has supported her.
