Our second Green Flag was for Energy and our committee worked hard raising awareness around energy usage both at home and in school. Ms Quinlan took over the reins for this flag. Our energy consumption was put under the microscope, bills were examined and fed into the Sustainable Energy Assoication of Ireland (SEAI) website quarterly. This flag saw us win grants for a new oil condensing boiler and also for energy efficient LEd lighting upgrade. Overall, a highly productive effort of which we and the planet will reap the rewards for many years to come!


Our Green School – Energy Flag Committee is made up of pupils from 3rd to 6th Class. They work hard to promote physical activity in our school. We have held socially distanced meetings to discuss and plan upcoming events and Green School Week. 

Our Green School – Energy Flag Committee are involved in:

  • Helping to plan Green School events
  • Sharing Green School announcements on the intercom
  • Speaking to classes about our Green Schools events and bringing ideas to committee meetings
  • Organising and judging Gren School competitions, such as our slogan competition and fancy dress
  • Encouraging everyone to think of our planet! 🙂


We use our Green School noticeboard to display the great work done in our school.  At the start of the process, we held a competition throughout the school to find our new Green Flag slogan.  

The winning slogan below, was heard over and over again that year, was very appropriateand helped us kick-start our Green Campaign.
