Rothesay Joint Campus has received its first Green Flag award from Keep Scotland Beautiful’s Eco Schools programme.

The award was given to the school after it was able to demonstrate excellence in three important environmental areas - reducing energy use, cutting litter in the playground and growing and selling its own produce.

Rothesay Primary School has a record of Green Flag excellence going back several years, but this is the first time the campus as a whole has received the award.

The Green Flag itself was unfurled by Steven Officer from the campus janitorial team this week, watched by Rothesay Academy school captains Megan Morrison and Daniel McDermott, along with pupils Connor Hatton and Eilidh McTaggart - and by lots more pupils from the comfort of their nearby classrooms!

“There are seven different areas schools can work on,” Maureen Shaw, the campus’s depute head for pre-5 to P5, explained, “and each school has to choose three of those seven topics to concentrate on.”
