Damers Awarded the Eco Green Flag

eco-schools logoDamers First School has recently achieved the prestigious award of the Eco Green Flag. There are only 11 schools in Dorset which have achieved this award.

Gill Hickman (Eco Green Flag Assessor) said in her report:

“There are obvious strengths in the school’s work in global dimension, energy and grounds but it is the sheer scale and breadth of work in sustainability at Damers that is breath-taking. All staff support the agenda and the children clearly love it. Green Fingers are fine ambassadors for their school and should be congratulated for providing a particularly exciting tour of the school in action. The engagement and enthusiasm for education for sustainability by so many members off staff in different curriculum areas was highly impressive.”
