Green School

St. Brigid’s Primary School is proud to be a green school. The Green School initiative promotes long-term, whole-school action for the environment. The programme is operated and co-ordinated by the Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce (FEE member for Ireland). This programme is very valuable as it teaches all of us to be more aware of our environment and to treat our planet with respect. The Green School programme examines different aspects of the environment. Each year a committee is formed which includes pupils, staff and members of the wider community. Their job is to facilitate the implementation of a plan which will help our environment.

 

To date we have been awarded the following green flags: Litter and Waste Management, Energy Conservation, Water Coservation , Travel and Biodivesity.

Walking to school and reducing carbon emissions!
