Over the past 4 years, Calday Grange Grammar School has been working towards the prestigious ‘Green Flag Award’ as part of an international scheme ran by Eco-Schools.
Since 2017, the Eco Council, Premises Team, Mrs Storey (Director of Student Services) and the Senior Leadership Team have worked tirelessly to make the school more environmentally friendly – and now they have reached a significant milestone in our fight for green.
On Tuesday, it was confirmed that the Caldy school’s Green Flag Application had been successful, meaning that it is now officially a Green Flag School.
The award has been granted due to the school significantly reducing the litter on site and in the community, increasing biodiversity (such as having Bee and Butterfly gardens, wild areas and hedgehog houses) and reducing waste.
A school spokesperson said, “The Premises Team also deserves a big thank you and well done for their tireless, wonderful support and help they have provided to achieve the Green Flag over the past 4 years and their continuous efforts to make Calday a brilliant environment to learn in.”
“In addition, Lynn Struve, the Eco-Schools Officer for Wirral Borough Council deserves many thanks for her expert guidance and support!
“Finally, thank you to Mr Gray and Mrs Storey for their constant support, patience and enthusiasm throughout this process.”
