Green Schools

Here in Scoil Naomh Pádraig we are very proud to be a Green School!

We have achieved 5 green flags so far and the quest for our 6th flag is underway. We hope that this year, 2019/2020, we will be putting in our application to achieve the 6th Green Flag for Global Citizenship: Litter and Waste.

The 5 flags we currently have are for:

  • Litter and waste
  • Energy
  • Water
  • Travel
  • Biodiversity

Our new committee has been appointed (see pic below) and are very enthusiastic about the role they will play in leading our school towards flag number 6. To achieve this flag we will be undertaking lots of new activities, while also continuing the work to maintain our existing flags.

Our school participates in Walk on Wednesday (WOW) and Cycle on Wednesday (COW). The classes with the highest amount of walkers and cyclists receive the Golden Boot or the Golden Helmet for their class to display for the week!

The Litter Patrolling, garden maintenance, energy/water conservation and commitment to keeping our school as traffic free as possible, is overseen by our very active Green Schools Committee.

Have a look at our Green Schools noticeboard in the Admin building to keep in touch with any news the committee would like to share.

We are delighted to continue working towards our 6th flag for Global Citizenship Litter and Waste. This theme enables schools to discover how work on Green-Schools has positively influenced our global community. It is focused on raising awareness on how looking after our environment can aid people all over the world, promoting ‘Active Citizenship’ and making an improvement in the litter and waste management in our school. For flag number 6 will be carrying out Global Awareness Surveys and Nationality Surveys and we will be learning lots about the Sustainable Development Goals as outlined by the UN in 2015. We will be holding an Action Day in May 2020 to showcase all the work we will be doing throughout the year.
