Monica Commends Coatbridge Primary School’s Pupil-Led Eco-Committee

Monica has raised a Parliamentary motion celebrating the St Patrick’s Primary and Nursery on winning Eco-Committee of the Year in the 2023 Eco-Schools Awards, making them the first ever eco-committee to be recognised by the charity Keep Scotland Beautiful.

Monica commented:

“St Patrick’s Primary and Nursery Eco-Committee are a group of inspirational young people who are working hard to raise awareness of the environment in their community for a clean, green and sustainable future.

“It’s brilliant to see forward-thinking work like this from local young people being recognised.

“Young people are at the heart of the fight against the climate crisis and they must be heard”
