Keeping Brightside Green
In 2019, Brightside NI School was awarded the Eco Green Flag School Award for the second time.
We have been involved in a range of projects that have helped us to achieve this such as:
- Walk to School Week
- Green Week/Community Week
- World Culture Day
- Gardening After School Club
- Developing our School Garden alongside the local community
- Developing our Outdoor Learning Area alongside business firms from the local community
- Monitors to help keep our school 'green' e.g. light monitor, plant monitor
The Green Team
The Green Team at Brightside NI School have a special job to help Miss Beard and Mrs Scott take care of the environment in and around school.
In the autumn term, pupils in year 1 and year 2 apply to become part of the Green Team. They need to explain how they can help to look after the school.
