Lismore pupils are flying their latest Eco-flag.

Head teacher Debbie Harris says youngsters have been working hard over the past year to earn another Eco-Flag.

The island school sent off its bid in October showcasing its work and have just had news of their success.

‘The award celebrates our commitment to looking after the environment. Over the past year we have been doing this by growing, harvesting and composting in our school garden; re-cycling, reducing and re-using materials where we can and sustaining little to no litter pollution in our environment by putting all litter in the bin and introducing a bin to our outdoor area,’ said Ms Harris.

She added: ‘This is Lismore Primary School’s fifth Eco-Flag award and we are very proud to be able to sustain our commitment to looking after the environment with this years’ cohort.’

The Eco-Schools Green Flag scheme is an international accreditation that has recognised and rewarded young people’s environmental actions for more than 25 years.
