Eco School

ABC Council - Neighbourhood Improvement and Enforcement Visit

"The Eco Schools programme consists of a growing community of schools throughout Europe who are committed to the continuous improvement of their local environment.  Most young people care deeply about environmental issues and wish to make a positive change in the environment around them. The Eco-Schools programme provides an ideal way for fostering environmental awareness in the entire school in a way that links to many curriculum subjects. The primary aim of the Eco-Schools programme is to educate and empower young people to make positive decisions and become change makers for an environmentally sustainable world."

Please see their website for further details.


As schools develop their environment they are awarded bronze and silver certificates and Green Flag status.  Markethill Primary School has recently gained bronze and silver certificates (January 2018).


After a short break, our school has recently elected a new Eco Committee with two children representing each class from Primary 4 to Primary 7. The committee, with the help of the whole school community, will  work together towards Green Flag status.


On Thursday 19th September, Councillor Julie Flaherty, a member of the Environmental Committee of Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, came to announce the results of our in-school election and declared the following 8 candidates as elected.  A big congratulations to them all!
