Today, we want to hear about schools who practise the three Rs – reduce, reuse and recycle. If this sounds like your school, then you should nominate them for the Sustainable School of the Year Award, sponsored by the NSG Group, manufacturers of Pilkington glass.

This category recognises schools that have developed environmental awareness and sustainable development education across all the curriculum areas and the life of the school.

Last year’s winning school was Hope Academy where sustainable development and sustainability are at the heart of the school. The judges recognised that students have “hands-on” involvement in local environmental and regeneration projects and engage both with the local community and the developing world, in projects to improve quality of life for others.

The Sustainable School category is sponsored by NSG Group, the manufacturer of Pilkington glass in the UK, who operate in three sustainable business sectors; Architectural, supplying glass for the world’s buildings and solar energy applications; Automotive, producing glass and glazing systems for vehicles worldwide; and Technical Glass, operating in the display, office equipment and glass fibre sectors. Working safely and ethically, NSG Group manufactures sustainable, high quality value added glass products. These products contribute to energy conservation and generation, improving living standards, safety, security and well being of people.

The Company is proud to support the community by sponsoring the St Helens Education Awards for the fourth time.
