The Future is Green for Hesketh House

Monday, 21 March 2011

Bolton School Junior Girls have been working hard to do their bit for the environment by planting trees in a bid to make Hesketh House more environmentally friendly.

Members of the Hesketh House Eco-School committee had fun planting and naming numerous trees on the school's embankment as part of the schools' drive to reach the Silver Award in the Eco-Schools programme.

The Eco-Schools programme supports schools to work on different environmental and sustainable issues. Pupils set up a committee which has representatives from all members of the school community, then address a variety of environmental themes, ranging from litter and waste to healthy living and biodiversity. Schools work towards a Bronze Award, a Silver Award and the prestigious Green Flag Award, which symbolises excellence in the field of environmental activity.  

It is one of five environmental education programmes run internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). There are 46 countries around the world that run the Eco-Schools programme, linking more than 40,000 schools - from the UK to France, from Morocco to South Africa.
