The Green Council
This is a child page of Children
The school is involved in the Green Schools Programme with DLRCC and An Taisce- an international environmental education programme and award scheme that promotes and acknowledges long-term, whole school action for the environment.
One of the key success factors of the Green-Schools programme is that it is a themed programme. That is, schools undertaking the programme work through the seven steps one theme at a time. The themes in sequence are:
- Litter & Waste
- Global Citizenship - Litter & Waste
- Global Citizenship - Energy
From September 2012 pupils worked towards a Biodiversity Green Flag by making the school grounds a welcoming place for all types of wildlife.
They have planted shrubs and flowers that will attract butterflies and bees, put up bird feeders and built a ‘bug motel’. In the summer their organic garden harvested tomatoes, lettuce, radishes and potatoes.
The Green Council members are elected by their classmates each year and they support the class and the school in their ‘green’ endeavors.
We hope to develop lots of ideas on how we can work together to protect our beautiful planet.
We would like to thank the co-ordinators through the years, Ms. Colette Hussey, Ms. Aileen O’Connor, Ms. Mary Meagher, Ms. Renee Lynch and Ms. Anne Hutchinson for committing themselves to this very important project.
Well done to our Green School Team!
