Stirling High School is an ECO School and proudly holds the GREEN FLAG Award
We were the first Stirling Council Secondary school to be awarded a Green Flag. In fact, we were one of the first schools in Scotland to be given recognition for the prestigious award.
Most young people care deeply about environmental issues. They want to help, but knowing what to do is not always easy. Eco-Schools could be the answer.
The Eco-Schools programme is an international initiative designed to encourage whole-school action for the environment. It is a recognised award scheme that accredits schools who make a commitment to continuously improve their environmental performance. It is also a learning resource that raises awareness of environmental and sustainable development issues throughout activities linked to curricular subjects and areas.
The aim of the Eco-Schools programme is to make environmental awareness and action an intrinsic part of the life and ethos of the school for both pupils and for staff and to engage the wider community. The Eco-Schools programme can help schools to:
• Improve the school’s environment
• Reduce litter and waste
• Reduce energy and water use
• Devise efficient was of travelling to and from school
• Promote healthy lifestyles
• Encourage active citizenship
• Build strong partnerships with a variety of community groups
• Develop international and global links
Eco-Schools Scotland is a programme of Keep Scotland Beautiful.
