“Thank you; it was a worthwhile course which left me buzzing and ready to take on the world!”

Karen Porter, Slough & Eton School

“I have a much clearer understanding of the Eco-Schools/Green Flag Programme and the impact it has had upon schools. Good clear knowledge of application process”

Lisa Georgeson, Lord Blyton Primary School, South Shields

“The course was very informative, useful and inspiring. It made you want to get on and do – which I have! I’ve got a meeting set up with a couple of other departments to see what we can offer schools.”

Michelle Marley, Waste Education Officer, Central Bedfordshire Council

“Many thanks for the brilliantly delivered training and thank you again for coming. I received a call from another school as a consequence of the training on Friday afternoon – the children want to interview me for a video they are producing and are getting ready for their Green Flag! With thanks again and kind regards.”

Valerie Francis, Strategic Waste Officer, Colchester Borough Council
