We are pleased to announce that Queen Margaret Academy has been re-awarded Green Flag status. A lot of good work by the S2 Eco elective and pupils recycling using the new bins in the classroom and other initiatives have helped us with this achievement. A Green Flag and a Certificate will be issued presently and a Green Flag Assessment Report will be emailed to us at a later date.
