TfL Gold for The Gower School

13th February 19

The Gower School Principal Miss Gowers with the Mayor of Islington presenting TfL STARS Gold awards in a classroom of children in costumes

We coincided celebrations on Wednesday 13th February with a ‘Dress Up as a Tube Station’ day to celebrate achieving the Transport for London Gold STARS travel award. The children showed lots of creativity with their homemade costumes and were greeted by the Mayor of Islington, Cllr Dave Poyser, who came to present the award to Principal Emma Gowers who said, “We are so proud at The Gower School to have received this award. It has been a real collaborative effort between the school and all our families to keep as ‘green’ as possible and we look forward to continuing with our environmental work and maintaining such high standards.” The Mayor also spoke to the children about the importance of clean air in the borough and praised the school for its support for public transport, walking, cycling and scooting to school.

By receiving the Gold award, we are amongst the top 10% of London schools who set high standards to inspire others to transform travel habits, fully engage the wider community to promote best practices, and see a measurable reduction in the number of journeys made by car every day. We will have our TfL STARS Gold status until 2021 and our children led Eco-Committee will continue to tackle important environmental issues such as air pollution and reducing, reusing and recycling materials.
