Green Schools

The theme we are working on to earn our green flag is "Litter and Waste". To receive our flag we must reduce how much waste we produce, re-use materials where possible and recycle waste.

So far we have greatly reduced how much rubbish we send to landfill. We are reusing paper/cardboard for art and we are recycling batteries, paper and plastic throughout all classes.

Our application form for a 'Green Flag' has been approved by An Taisce. We are now awaiting an inspection by Dara Wyre of Kildare County Council on Friday 8th February 2013.

We hope to have good news then!!

Don't forget our green code:- Wipe Out Waste, Have Good Taste.

Green Action Day

Our Green Action Day was a real success. In the morning Oscar the Grouch visited the Junior and Senior Infants. Also the Litter Warden visited the 1st and 5th classes. In the afternoon the 2nd and 4th classes were given a talk on recycled briquettes in the library. Later on the Green School Committee members visited the 1st, 4th, 5th and 6th classes distributing new paper bins and to talk about litter and waste. Throughout the day the committee made announcements over the intercom. The Green Action Day was a great day and has made everyone more aware of litter and recycling. Wipe Out Waste, Have Good Taste!
