Despite the declining number of students, school Cefn Onn Primary in Llanishen, Cardiff, is to maintain high standards and continues to develop its green.
The school should close in 2012 when students will be transferred to watershed Coed Glas, Llysfaen, Thornhill and Llanishen Fach Primary.
But despite the clouds hanging over him, Cefn Onn earned a second Green Flag and Green School of the Year of the tag team of Cardiff council’s waste education.
Keep Wales Tidy assessors were overwhelmed by what they saw and spent a morning at school talking to students and staff.
The judges praised the high standards Cefn Onn environmental management, with measures of saving energy and water, especially in light of applause.
Bryony Butcher, Keep Wales Tidy Eco-schools officer of Cardiff, said: “I was very touched by the enthusiasm, knowledge and motivation of students and staff.
“It is easy to slip into the downward spiral when the closing trades, but this school has struggled against this and demonstrated a level of inspiration of thought, creativity and innovation positively, some thing we can all learn from in the current climate.”
The Assembly Government has formally approved plans to close the Cefn Onn Primary School and expand the scope and age at Llysfaen Thornhill primary schools last year.
