In St Patrick's N.S we have been working on the Green Schools Programme for over 10 years. We are very proud of all the work that has been done to date to achieve the five green flags that we have been awarded. A huge amount of dedication has been shown by the whole school community to attain these flags.
The programme is based on seven steps:
1. Green Schools Committee 2. Environmental Review 3. Action Plan 4. Monitoring and Evaluation 5. Curriculum Work. 6. Informing and Involving 7. Green Code.
The Green Schools Programme is a themed programme. We are currently working towards our Global Citizenship Flag. We are learning about our responsibilities and rights as global citizens and making positive changes to our school environment and our practices.
We look forward to raising our 6th flag some day soon!
The themes are:
1. Litter and Waste 2. Energy 3. Water 4. Travel 5. Bio-diversity 6. Global Citizenship
