15 November 2012
A day nursery in Glasgow will be waving its green credentials, thanks to Persimmon Homes West Scotland
Pupils and staff from St Clare’s Day Nursery in Easterhouse will raise their first green flag on a 15 foot pole donated by the West Scotland region.
As part of the Scottish Eco-Schools programme the children were encouraged to engage in a variety of environmental and sustainable issues, including litter and waste minimisation, and promoting healthy lifestyles.
Ann McIntyre Child Development Team Leader at St Clare’s Day Nursery, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have achieved our eco status.
“The children took their eco work very seriously and embraced the various challenges but most of all had great fun in the process.
“We are delighted and grateful to Persimmon Homes West Scotland for their kind donation so that we can proudly promote our new green status to help launch our new school term.
Persimmon Homes West Scotland, sales director, Ingrid Gahagan, said: “We were very happy to help promote the great work of St Clare’s Day Nursery.
“It’s important that all levels of the community work on creating a sustainable future for communities in and around Glasgow, so it’s great to see this kind of commitment from children so young.”
More than 500,000 pupils across Scotland are part of the Eco-Schools programme.
