‘Best Kept School’ Award 2014

Congratulations to Grosvenor which was announced as a winner at the 2014 ‘Best Kept School Awards’, run by the Northern Ireland Amenity Council, on Tuesday 10th June. 

Competing in the Belfast Area Post-Primary category, Grosvenor defeated stiff opposition from across its region following an inspection, carried out by Amenity Council judges, on Thursday 10th April.  Following this assessment, in which the School secured an overall score of 85 out of 100, it was commended for the strong sense of biodiversity, recycling and ecology evident within it, the excellent condition of its overall grounds - including a lack of litter, as well as its high level of pupil participation and pupil-led projects.  

The School was officially presented with its award at a ceremony held at Cairnshill Methodist Church on Tuesday 10th June, where Upper 6th pupils Karen O’Hare and Shanah Chauke, accompanied by Mrs Heather Reid – teacher representative on the School’s Environment Committee, and vice-principal Mr Brian Wilson, received the School’s accolade.

Well done to all at Grosvenor who helped the School to achieve this prestigious award for the second time in recent years; it serves as official recognition of the pleasant environment in which the entire School community goes about its business on a daily basis and is the latest award to come Grosvenor's way in what has been another outstanding year of achievement within it.
