What is EnviRRRo? EnviRRRo is our Environmental Education programme which aims to inculcate in Anthonians a positive attitude towards caring for and protecting the environment. This is done through increasing pupils’ awareness of environmental issues and green alternatives through talks, learning journeys, the integration of messages into the curriculum and the use of Learning Hubs.
Aim of EnviRRRo To integrate our environmental education into our school elements, partnerships and review process.
