A part of the Eco School Programme
It was a matter of great pride as OOS was awarded the Green Flag for the fourth consecutive year by the Emirates Center for Arab Towns (ECAT).
The internationally recognized Green Flag Award is part of the Eco School Programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life. Eco-Schools programme aims to enhance the curriculum and get the whole school united to find sustainable solutions for environmental issues.
The award is in recognition of the school’s sustainable practices led by the Eco Club- Evagreen. Each year the enthusiastic Eco ambassadors of Our Own work on green initiatives such as reducing the carbon footprint, reducing electricity bills, building vertical gardens by recycling plastic waste, growing vegetables, creating an aquatic pond focusing on biodiversity, hydroponics and a green house. Besides these street plays, posters and awareness campaigns are a regular feature at OOS and our girls have made a mark in the local community by contributing towards the recycling initiatives by donating newspapers, pens, plastic bottles and cans.
