Kilrea Primary School is celebrating becoming the first school in Northern Ireland to win ten Green Flags through the Eco-Schools initiative.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Councillor Brenda Chivers recently hosted a reception in Cloonavin to mark the unique achievement. The internationally recognised award identifies excellence in environmental action and learning. With support from staff at the school, pupils have engaged in litter
picking, waste management and recycling and have actively contributed to
environmental activities.

Offering her congratulations, the Mayor said: “Staff and pupils at Kilrea Primary School have set a fantastic example and they truly deserve their most recent accolade which sets them apart from all other schools. It is inspiring to hear their success story and I hope their enthusiasm continues as the future of our environment depends on our young people and the changes they can make.

“By successful taking part in the Eco-Schools programme, the pupils are fostering an important understanding of environmental awareness which will remain with them throughout their lives.”
