Luss Primary School has scooped its seventh Eco-Schools Green Flag.

 

Run by Keep Scotland Beautiful, Eco-Schools is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world and encourages young people to take steps to ensure that we look after our environment.

 

Congratulating the school, Argyll and Bute Council’s Policy Lead for Education, Councillor Yvonne McNeilly said: “To receive one green flag is a great achievement, but to be awarded seven is truly remarkable.

 

“The Eco Schools programme is a great way to teach children about the importance of looking after the world around them and provides a useful learning framework for learning, in line with the curriculum of excellence.”

 

Ann Marie Knowles, the Council’s Executive Director of Community Services said: “I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the pupils, staff and parents at Luss Primary School. All their hard work and determination has certainly paid off.”
