Eco- Awareness at Christ the King Primary School
All our staff and pupils are committed to educating about caring for and respecting the environment and developing sensible citizens that are able to make valuable decisions.
The Eco Team at our school has a key role in achieving this and is a vital part of our Eco-Schools programme. The Eco Team are selected members of the School Council, certain pupils who have enthusiastically supported Eco issues and asked to be part of the team, Miss Flynn (P.S.H.E.

Eco – Schools Scheme
Christ the King Catholic Primary School is a member of the Eco – Schools Programme. This is an international initiative that encourages pupils to engage with the environment and sustainable development issues. We hope to renew our Eco-Schools Green Flag Award during the Autumn Term.
‘Our mission is to help make every school in the country sustainable and to bring about behaviour change in young people and those connected to them so that good habits learned in schools are followed through into homes and communities. What’s more, by addressing environmental issues in school and reducing waste, they'll save money, which can be reinvested elsewhere.’
