Eco Schools

Our Eco-Schools programme aims to promote environmental awareness of the entire school.  An awareness of the environment and a pride in our school and community is an important part of our school ethos.  


In Ashgrove Primary our Eco Committee is led by Mrs McGivern.  The Eco Committee is made up of a number of children from P4-7.

We are a Green Flag Eco School!
