The aim of our committee is to make students, staff, and the wider community aware of how their lifestyle choices affect the environment and to ensure that Stanhope Secondary School remains a green school. A team of enthusiastic, committed students to make huge efforts to look at how our school can be more environmentally friendly. We believe every small effort can make a big difference!!

The Green Schools Programme aims to include all members of the School Community. Parent participation is most welcome. We are open to new ideas and suggestions.
