Eco School Award


Victoria Nursery School is a ‘Silver Award Winner’ in the Eco Schools Northern Ireland initiative. This award has been given in recognition of our achievement in working towards a sustainable environment. Our Autumn visit to Belvoir Park is a lovely day out that kick starts a yearlong programme focusing on the World Around Us.

Eco Schools aims to make environmental awareness and action an intrinsic part of the life and ethos of a school. This should include the students, teachers, non-teaching staff and parents, as well as the local authority, the media and local businesses. Eco-Schools endeavours to extend learning beyond the classroom and develop responsible attitudes and commitment, both at home and in the wider community. Its participatory approach and combination of learning and action make it an ideal way for schools to embark on a meaningful path to improving the environments of schools and their local communities, and of influencing the lives of young people, school staff, families, local authorities, NGOs, and all other bodies involved in this.
