At Rickmansworth School we are passionate about the environment and we are working hard towards becoming a sustainable and environmentally friendly school. In January of this year, we were very proud to be awarded our first Eco-Schools Green Flag. Eco-Schools is a global programme across 67 countries, making it the largest educational programme on the planet. The Green Flag is an international accreditation which has recognised and rewarded young people’s environmental actions for over 25 years. More information regarding the Eco Schools programme can be found on their website.
The Rickmansworth Eco Committee has representatives from each year group and one of our main areas of responsibility is to decide upon the areas that we would like to focus on when working towards the Green Flag accreditation. The Eco Committee also works on new ideas for making our school greener and more sustainable. We raise environmental awareness by delivering assemblies to the school, sharing ideas on social media and in the school bulletin. We also work closely with the Horticultural Society.The Horticultural Society is responsible for tending to our school garden and the produce which is grown in the garden will be used in food technology lessons in order to teach the students about sustainable and responsible food production.
