Gallatown Nursery is celebrating after having its hard work helping the local community go green recognised.

Following an assessment carried out in September, the nursery received a glowing report from the Eco-School’s assessor, where the children received high praise in their journey of achieving their first Green Flag.

Gallatown will now be recommended to other groups and organisations as part of sharing good practice on how to be able to achieve this prestigious award.

The assessor was also delighted to see the nursery take part in the Clean Up Scotland campaign along with Sinclairtown Primary School, demonstrating the nursery’s ambition to make a cleaner and greener future for the local community.

Helen Hamilton, head teacher, said: “The children have really enjoyed participating in many opportunities to enhance their understanding of eco work, bringing them closer to nature through hands on experiences.

“They have created a range of different habitats to encourage wildlife into the nursery garden, planted a wide range wildlife attracting plants, and promoted recycling and anti litter campaigns in the local community.”
