‘Our Eco- Com­mit­tee and Green Gar­den­ers Com­mit­tee have done a lot of work across the school in­volv­ing ev­ery class.

‘Led by Miss Adam and Mrs Cara­bine, the com­mit­tees, with pupils from ev­ery class rep­re­sented, worked in the school gar­den and on a va­ri­ety of eco top­ics.

‘Now that we are set­tling into the new school, the groups are very ex­cited about get­ting started in the new eco gar­den and planters around the school when spring ar­rives.’

Caol Pri­mary School’s gar­den­ers club and eco com­mit­tee re­ceived the award for their work in the school gar­den and on a va­ri­ety of eco top­ics.
