The Green School Committee are very busy working towards their Global Citizenship, Litter and Waste Flag. The committee are now collecting raw food waste every Friday to compost in the school wormery. The Clean and Green Team as well as some students from Fifth class have been busy planting new flowers and cleaning up the garden area in the Main School Area. The Committee organised a green day on Friday 1st of February in order to raise funds to go towards the installation of a sensory garden in our School Garden. The total raised was €356.88 . Thanks to all students for their contribution.

On the 5th of October the Green School Committee and members of the Clean and Green Team held an opening ceremony of the new silver birch wooded area.
The trees which were planted by the Clean and Green team were sponsored by students and staff in the school. The trees have been officially labelled to represent their sponsor and past pupils are welcome back any time to check on the growth of their tree. The ceremony coincided with National Tree Day.
If anyone is interested in sponsoring a tree, please see Ms. Conlon in Room 15.
