Green Schools News

The Green Schools Committee is currently working on Gonzaga's sixth green flag: Global Citizenship - Litter and Waste. So far we have conducted a global awareness survey, a nationalities survey and a waste audit. We carried out litter pick ups on the school grounds and sold water bottles and travel mugs to encourage students to avoid single use plastics. ​We have also continued working on previous themes.
