HAVING already obtained the prestigious Eco flag a few years ago Andover School’s Eco Group, led by Mr Troon, is working hard to enable them to apply for Eco Schools once more.

The children in the group have identified several areas that they will focus on this year, including: the school pond, a bird-feeding station and an outdoor mural.

The school will also continue to recycle paper and cardboard, keeping their playground free from litter and saving as much energy as possible.

These targets link well with the school’s last ‘Bounce Back’ value - respect, which encourages respect for individuals but also for the environment, including the school grounds and varied ecosystems around Andover.
