‘Think Green, Do Green, Be Green’ is the school’s Green Code. This recently led to the attainment of the school’s first green flag. Transition year students over the past two years formed green school committees to come up with initiatives to make our school more environmentally friendly. The first green flag for litter and waste acknowledges the dedication and hard work of these committees.
Indeed each student in the school deserves huge credit in complying with the many projects undertaken by the green school committees. From introducing new recycling bins, to carrying out research and surveys on what was required, to delivering a power point presentation and talk to every class in the school, making them aware of the importance of recycling and having a litter-free school.
Many thanks to is also due to Micheál O’Coileáin, environmental officer with Kerry County Council, who visited and inspected the work carried out by students and sent a report to An Taisce, who awarded the green flag. Liam Hurley, the school’s caretaker, supported the students tirelessly and deserves great credit for his work. Mr. Bonner, Mrs. Harkin, the entire staff and the school community are very proud of the school’s achievement. Well done to all concerned.
