The 20th Anniversary of Eco-Schools in Northern Ireland was marked at a special celebration. Speaking at the event at Meadowbank Arena, Magherafelt, Environment Minister Mark H Durkan praised the young people and their teachers for driving forward great work for the Environment.

Minister Durkan said: "Every pupil wants to achieve 100% and their teachers push them to do just that ! I am delighted that I have achieved 100% in my drive to have every school an Eco School. Over the past year I have made this a personal priority and I wrote to schools encouraging them to take part.

"Some of my most rewarding times as Environment Minister have been my visits to the Eco Schools witnessing at first hand the great work of our eco warriors and their teachers.

"Over the next year I will continue to work with Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful and our schools to build on this success."

The event was attended by over 1000 young people – representing schools from across the North. ends
