Our Eco-Schools programme aims to promote environmental awareness of the entire school.  An awareness of the environment and a pride in our school and community is an important part of our school ethos.  


In Ashgrove Primary our Eco Committee is led by Miss McDowell.  The Eco Committee is made up of a number of children from P4-7.

Eco Club with Miss McDowell and Mr Smith meet each Thursday.

  • increased physical activity levels resulting in improved health and well-being
  • reduced congestion and pollution around schools 
  • improved academic performance and attendance rates
  • increased road safety awareness
  • increased confidence, self-esteem and independence for young people
