Progress to Date!
At present the school has achieved its BRONZE AWARD and its SILVER AWARD. We are working towards our GREEN FLAG. Miss Clark has worked very hard with the ECO Committee and Pupil Council to take these developments forward.
What’s it all about?
In August 2008 Strichen School registered as an Eco School with Eco Schools Scotland. The Eco Schools programme was set up to encourage schools to become more environmentally friendly and work together to actively improve their environmental performance. It is a recognised awards scheme and a learning resource that raises awareness of environmental and sustainable development issues throughout activities linked to curricular subjects and areas.
The aim of the Eco-Schools programme is to make environmental awareness and action an important part of the life and ethos of the school for both pupils and for staff and to engage the wider community.
The Eco-Schools programme can help schools to:
                   Improve the school's environment
                   Reduce litter and waste
                   Reduce energy and water use
                   Devise efficient was of travelling to and from school
                   Promote healthy lifestyles
                   Encourage active citizenship
                   Build strong partnerships with a variety of community groups
                   Develop international and global links
The Eco Group and the Pupil Council have been reformed into one group to represent the school. We hope that having one group will allow them to represent the pupils and the school more easily and help make decisions to help take the school forward.
The new committee names will be updated soon.
