Green-Schools Programme

We are currently participating in the Green-School Programme and were awarded our first Green Flag for Litter and Waste Management recently. The Green Flag was officially raised by Minister Sean Sherlock T.D.

The following outlines the seven steps of the Green-School Programme:

Step 1 - Election of the Green Schools Committee
This directs the school's involvement in the programme.

Step 2 - An Environmental Review
A process of examining the school's environmental impacts in order to identify targets for action and improvement.

Step 3 - Action Plan
This gives specific and achievable targets with proposed completion dates that will show real success.

Step 4 - Monitoring and Evaluation
This will ensure that progress towards targets is checked, amendments made where necessary and success is celebrated.

Step 5 - Curriculum Work
Curriculum materials are provided to gives ideas on how to integrate environmental issues into lessons.

Step 6 - Informing and Involving
A publicity programme keeps the school and the wider community involved and informed through displays, assemblies and press coverage.

Step 7 - Green Code
This is a statement of the school's committment to environmental good habits.
