Our Programmes

Eco Programme

Our Eco programme aims to engage pupils with the natural environment. By allowing children to experience directly the joys of the natural world through environmental games and challenges, the programme encourages an awareness of and empathy towards nature. Much of the activity on this programme ties into the curriculum and work in the classroom.
