Educating in a joyful, positive and secure setting

Green-Schools is the Irish branch of an international environmental education programme and award scheme known as Eco-Schools. It is designed to raise students’ awareness of environmental and sustainable development issues through classroom study. Green-Schools is run by An Taisce, in conjunction with local authorities. 

Led by Ms Quinlan and the Green-Schools committee, this initiative offers a way to take environmental issues from the curriculum and apply them to the day-to-day running of the school, for example reducing litter, waste, reducing energy bills, looking at how we travel to and from school, among others.  This process helps students to recognise the importance of environmental issues and take them more seriously in their personal and home lives.

The Green-Schools award is given to schools that successfully complete the programme. A Green-Schools award is in the form of a Green Flag that can be flown outside the school or displayed in a foyer. Award winners also receive a certificate, a logo to display on headed notepaper and other publicity material.
