Y Castell Primary Eco School Project
At Ysgol y Castell we have been working hard to ensure sustainable development is an integral part of its life and ethos. The whole school is united in this common cause. By encouraging pupils to take responsibility for the environmental management of the school we are developing increased sense of ownership for their school surroundings.
We have built strong partnerships with the community. This has enabled us to draw on a wealth of knowledge and expertise from the school and local community and from businesses, associations and clubs.
The Eco-Committee is the driving force of the Eco-Schools Programme. Our committee consists of pupils from Year one to Year 6, who have been elected by their peers.
The Eco School Programme is a long term activity with the Green Flag Award being re-assessed and renewed every two years. (www.eco-schoolswales.org).
