The staff, pupils and parents of Glenbervie School were delighted to receive the news that they had successfully retained their Green Flag status for the fourth time. It was made particularly special because the pupils and community had pulled together to rebuild the School garden after it was severely damaged by Storm Frank. The children were also complimented on their Pupil Action Plans where the pupils led the agenda, meetings and ensured all classes had a role in contributing to our Eco Schools Agenda.  It was a huge achievement that has been recognised and supported by the local community. The pupils are now continuing to look at the UN sustainability goals and work alongside our Rights Respecting group to enhance the learning already taking place.
