Green School Programme

Green schools known internationally as Eco-Schools, is an international environmental education programme.  The aim of Green Schools is to increase students and participant awareness of environmental issues through classroom studies and to transfer this knowledge into positive environmental action in the school and also in the wider community.

Travel is the fourth theme of the Green Schools Programme and there are many ways that this can be incorporated such as the walking bus.

The journey to school is an ideal way for children to take part in regular physical activity, to interact with their peers, and to develop the road sense children need as pedestrians and cyclists.
