Green Schools 2018/2019
Caroreigh N.S has been working hard over the years and have succeeded in being awarded 5 Green School Flags by An Taisce, covering the themes of Litter and Waste, Energy, Water, Travel and Biodiversity.
We are now working towards our 6th flag, with the theme being Global Citizenship – Litter and Waste. This maintenance theme enables schools to discover how work on Green Schools has positively influenced our global community.
Our current theme enables schools to discover how Green Schools work has positively influenced people and environments worldwide while revising the previous Litter and Waste theme. Our current committee have been working hard towards raising awareness about litter and waste and working towards a cleaner, greener environment. They have come up with wonderful ideas about how we can reduce waste and be more litter aware, including: weekly litter collections, bin monitors, supplying each classroom with posters of what is appropriate to put in each bin and providing bins outside at lunchtime.
