Green Schools

What is Green-Schools?

Green-Schools, known internationally as Eco-Schools, is an international environmental education programme, environmental management system and award scheme that promotes and acknowledges long-term, whole school action for the environment.

A Green Schools committee has been set up in our school and we have been working hard in order to receive a green flag.

green flag award 2011

On the 4th of March we went in to collect our first Green Flag. The ceremony took place in Hotel Kilkenny. There were schools from Kilkenny,Waterford,Wexford,Carlow,South Tipp and North Tipp. It took about two hours to get though all the schools. We went in at half ten and we were second to be called out. We felt delighted to get our first Green Flag. After the prize giving we got lunch in the restaurant. We got spaghetti. Yummy!!!! When we came back to school we gave out pencils, rubbers, rulers and leaflets. When our friends from Norway and England come over in June we will be raising our Green Flag!

In June 2013 we received our second green flag. We earned this flag for our work on the theme of energy.
We are now working towards our third flag . The theme for this flag is Water.

Here are our 6th class pupils with their first attempt at making a movie using an Ipad:
