Green Schools Committee

Here at St. Vincent de Paul Infant School, we have working very hard on attaining the Green Schools Flag - Litter and Waste. Our Green Schools Committee is made up of student reps from each class who have assessed and monitored how, as a school, we can reduce the amount of litter and waste we produce daily.
