School Wins RSPB Wild Challenge Gold Award 

St. Mary's recently won the RSPB's Wild Challenge Gold Award for our efforts to help nature locally, nationally and globally. We have done this in a number of ways.

On a local scale we have built bird, bee and hedgehog houses as well as growing native trees in our scrap-built nursery. We have picked up litter along the Tweed to stop it washing up on beaches around the country and further afield.

We have helped to raise awareness of plastic pollution through poster campaigns and (upcoming!) assemblies and we have committed, with the help of Surfers Against Sewage, to becoming a Plastic Free School.

We have so many plans for things that we can do in the future but can be really proud of all that we have achieved so far.

Well done to all involved!
