Springdale National School has been involved with the Green Schools Programme for 8 years. The whole school community is dedicated to making our school and surrounding areas a beautiful and environmentally friendly place to be.
We have been awarded flags on the themes of Litter and Waste, Energy and more recently on Water. Each flag takes two years to complete and this year we are currently working on year 2 of our Transport flag. We are hoping to submit our completed application this term.
The theme of Transport aims to suggest ways for pupils, staff and local government to work together to raise awareness of transport issues and come up with practical solutions that will make a real difference to pupils’ everyday lives. It aims to increase the number of students walking, cycling, scooting, using public transport and car-pooling to and from school. This will ease congestion by reducing the number of cars arriving at our school gates.
