Welcome to St Francis' Eco page. We've been working tirelessly with our pupils to develop a real hub on environmental activity to ensure our pupils are getting the best outdoor learning we can. The school has been extremely fortunate to have inherited such large, diverse grounds which we aim to build upon for years to come. So far our work has been awarded with 2 Eco School's Green Flags, 2 Grow Wild project grants and the very first Primary school Gold Award for the RSPB's "Wild Challenge."
We'll aim to regularly post news and features about environmental issues our pupils work on, so please check in regularly to keep updated!
On Friday 29th March, 3 young red squirrels were kindly donated by Belfast Zoo to St Francis' PS as part of a red squirrel breeding programme. The animals will be kept safely and securely in the school woodlands to educate the children and local community about the plight of this amazing species!
