Green Schools > 6th Green Flag

Green Schools Project 2014 - 2015

This year we are working towards our sixth Green Flag. This flag is for schools that have been in the in the Green Schools Programme for a long number of years. The theme is Global Citizenship, Litter and Waste.
In our school litter pickers check the school playground every day after break and dispose of any litter. We had a Spring Clean earlier on in the year. We recycle paper, card and milk cartons. We compost fruit and pencil sharpenings and other materials. We re-use paper and card when possible. We encourage people not to litter.
For global citizenship, 5th and 6th class pupils did projects on Pakistan, Poland and Canada, which are countries of origon of some children in our school. The pupils then presented their projects to the other classes so we all learned new facts about these countries.
We also raised €250 from our Halloween raffle to buy dinners for children in poorer countries through the Children helping Children charity
