Green Flag Award

An Taisce has contacted us to say that our application for the International Green Flag award ( Energy Theme ) has been successful.

Congratulations to the entire school community and in particular to Ben Ryan and Pauric Halpin both TY students and members of our Green School Committee who played a key role in us achieving this award and worked tirelessly for the part 12 months on this project.

Preparation for the Green Energy Flag included an environmental review of the use of energy with a particular emphasis on possibilities for conserving electricity and heating oil. Research was completed on the use of all electrical appliances by survey and questionnaire. A special Low Energy Day  was held on March 12th last. A tremendous effort was put in by all on the Green School Committeeto raise energy awareness and  aspects of the energy theme was integrated with all curriculum areas.
