Many thanks to  Ronald Docherty Civil Engineering Company for the donation of the flag pole.

 In November 2016 we were awarded our 5th Green Flag Award.

  • Miss Stewart and Mrs MacIsaac also help us with our eco work. All the boys and girls in the school and nursery help with our eco activities.

Our school Eco Code is our mission statement.

We ran a competition during our Eco Week to create a new Eco Code. Primary 1/2 were our winners! This time, the code is a song. Sing along!   You will find an Eco Code in every room in our school and nursery.

 

  Our Eco Schools work involves everyone in the nursery and school and we are involved in activities within the village of Twechar too.

         

                                Supporting the annual 'Clean Up Scotland' campaign around the village.
