At Elizabeth College we care about the environment and sustainability.
Our commitment to becoming a more sustainable school impacts on many different aspects of school life. Our Student Eco Team, work closely with other students, staff and the Senior Leadership Team towards achieving our sustainability goals and has made considerable progress on environmentally friendly initiatives at College since its inception in 2018.
Elizabeth College has become the only school in Guernsey to be awarded Green Flag status by the Eco-Schools charity. The Eco-Schools programme empowers young people to make a difference in their school, local community and beyond. The Eco Team selected three focus topics - Biodiversity, Transport and Water – and created an action plan to make improvements in those areas. It was fantastic recognition for the Eco Team to be awarded its Green Flag, with distinction.
In addition the Elizabeth College Eco Team won two awards at the 2023 Channel Islands Insurance Corporation Bailiwick Conservation Awards: the Peter Walpole People’s Choice Award, and also the 2023 Young Conservationists of the Year. It is great to have the hard work of the Eco Team recognised in this way.
