As you know, our focus for our third green flag is to conserve water.  The whole school has been working so hard to reduce the amount of water being used at school.  You can also conserve water at home and third and fourth class have come up with a list of ways in which this can be done.  Each child brought home a flyer with these tips so make sure it is displayed somewhere that everyone can see it and help save water!
