‘Best Kept School’ Award

Congratulations to Grosvenor’s Urban Ecologists who recently helped the School to achieve second place in the Belfast Regional category of the 2013 ‘Best Kept School’ awards. 

The competition, run by the Belfast Amenity Council, saw judges visit the School earlier in the year when it was assessed in categories such as pupil participation, environmental enhancement and the absence of litter and general tidiness.

In particular the judges commented on the effort made by the School over recent years on various environmental projects while it was also commended on its excellent bike facilities for those who ride to school, the presence of recycling bins in all classrooms and  the fact that its vegetable garden enables the school to grow its own fruit and vegetables.

The awards ceremony for the competition was held in Grosvenor itself on Tuesday 11th June where 4th form pupils Tom Purdon and Amanda-Jane Godfrey, joined by teacher Mrs Heather Reid and Vice-Principal Mr Brian Wilson, collected the School’s award.

Well done once again to all involved in helping Grosvenor to achieve what is the latest in a series of environmental awards over recent years.
