Haileybury Almaty Celebrates Eco-Schools Green Flag Accreditation

We are thrilled to announce that Haileybury Almaty has once-again achieved the prestigious Eco-Schools Green Flag Award, recognising our commitment to environmental sustainability and education.

This significant accomplishment is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our students, staff, and entire school community. At this time, Haileybury Almaty remains the only school in Kazakhstan to have this esteemed accreditation. 

Our Journey to the Green Flag

Having first achieved Green Flag accreditation in 2021, Haileybury staff and students have worked hard to continue developing sustainable initiatives throughout the school. Re-accreditation every two years ensures member schools continue to prioritise their sustainability goals and values.  This academic year, our students engaged in a variety of impactful projects under the Eco-Schools framework, addressing critical themes such as climate change, waste management, energy conservation, and health and wellbeing. The accreditors were so impressed by the enthusiasm and passion from our students, that we were awarded a full pass.
