An acronym for ‘Green, Renewable, Organic and Waste Minimisation’, this competition serves to reward our local schools for all that they are doing to make their environment cleaner, greener and more sustainable.

‘The GROW awards are an acknowledgement of the amazing environmental work taking place in the schools throughout Louth’, according to Barry Eaton of Louth County Council. ‘The schools never cease to amaze not only in terms of waste prevention, conservation of resources and biodiversity but we value their role in communicating this message to the wider community, thereby making Louth a more sustainable place in which to live.  Louth continues to play a leading role in the raising of awareness and education in the areas of environmental and sustainable development issues.
