Schools may apply for the award at any time of the year.
The LEAF Award depends on an evaluation of the report sent by the school together with its application and a visit to the school by the evaluators. Most of the information needed to decide whether your school has been awarded is already provided by the report. The aim of the evaluators’ visit is to provide an opportunity to discuss various aspects of the report with members of the committee. After the visit, the evaluators report back to the LEAF Steering Committee – chaired by Nature Trust (Malta) as FEE’s representative – who decides whether the schools deserves the LEAF award.
