FERRING Primary School is celebrating the renewal of its Green Flag status.

An eco-schools inspector visited the school, in Sea Lane, Ferring, to bestow the award which recognises the school’s eco and environmentally-friendly activities carried out by the Green and Friendlies group, lead by teaching assistant Lynn Bridger.

Gill Silk, head teacher, said: “We are delighted with our new green flag and we are already working towards introducing more initiatives to reinforce pupils’ and adults’ awareness of environmental matters.”

Inspector Gill Baker added: “This is Ferring School’s third green flag and they are to be congratulated on sustaining and developing their eco agenda. It is very much the way of life of the school.

“The pupils are very proud of their allotments and knowledgeable about the wildlife in the school grounds. Well done to the whole school on all their hard work and achievements in sustaining their green agenda.”
