Flying the flag for our planet – again! July 2017

Published: July 13, 2017

We are delighted to have been successful in renewing our Eco Schools Green Flag Award.

Many schools manage to achieve the Green Flag once but then are not able to achieve it a second time, so this has been a wonderful achievement by the whole community, not least our tremendous Eco Warriors.

The assessors praised Harmeny for our “sound environmental work” and highlighted a number of areas where we are excelling – from community litter picking and Fairtrade awareness-raising to working collaboratively with partners such as RBS and Standard Life, and growing, cooking and selling our own produce through Balerno Farmers’ Market and Letterbox Bistro.

Chief Executive Neil Squires said: “It is fantastic that our environmental work continues to be a priority across the school – and that we are playing our part in looking after our fragile planet!”

We look forward to choosing new topics to focus on over the next two years and creating new action plans.
