The school was very honoured to be awarded its second green flag this year.
This award is a tribute to the ongoing dedication of our green school committee, comprising of pupils, parents and teachers, to the conservation of energy and recycling within the school.
Credit must also be given to the committee and indeed the entire school for raising awareness of this issue within our wider community. Jerry Buttimer T.D. attended on the day our second flag was raised and afterwards facilitated a trip to the Dáil for our Green School Committee members.
