We began our quest for a Green Flag in 2007. In May 2008 we were awarded our first Green Flag for Waste Management and in April 2010 we were awarded our second for Energy. We are currently working towards our third Green Flag for water conservation.
Our Green Schools Committee consists of 3 teachers: Ms. Kildea, Ms. Clinton and Ms. Smith.
18 pupils from 3rd-6th class (Senior Committee)
10 pupils from J.I.-2nd class (Junior Committee)
Mrs Mc Kernan (Board of Management representative)
Liam Molloy (Caretaker)
