Receiving our 6th Green Flag – 2017

We at St. Mary’s NS are very proud of our tradition with An Taisce’s Green Schools initiative and proudly display no less than six flags at our school entrance in recognition of our work since the turn of the millennium to build a sustainable future.

Starting in 2005, we have engaged with An Taisce and the local school and parish communities to raise awareness for such issues as waste management, reduction of energy consumption, water conservation, travel, bio-diversity and global citizenship.

Each year Mrs Farren works with other members of staff and, most importantly, our pupils on the Green Schools Committee to put a plan in place in order to work towards the collective goal of highlighting the issues affecting our environment and attaining our next green flag.
