Sauchie Nursery Celebrates Green Flag Success

Published on:


June 2015

Children at Sauchie Nursery are celebrating after being awarded their first Green Flag.
The nursery, which has 72 pupils in each of the morning and afternoon sessions, has been working on a range of environmental schemes and improvements.

Eco-School Scotland Lead assessor Anne Black said in her report, "Over the years you have created a rich and varied environment in which your children can play and learn with lots of features to attract wildlife. I was impressed by the range of produce growing in your garden and the children are certainly learning valuable lessons about where their food comes from."

Education Convener Councillor Ellen Forson visited the nursery this week and congratulated the children and staff on their achievement. She said: " My congratulations go to everyone at Sauchie Nursery on this achievement. The Eco School programme makes an important contribution to achieving environmental awareness by encouraging young people to learn about and improve their environment and to live in a more environmentally sustainable way."

Initiatives have included growing fruit and vegetables in the nursery garden, tackling litter in the nursery grounds and even coming up with a song about litter.

Sauchie Nursery is now working towards its second Green Flag.
