Green Schools in our School

St. Attracta's Senior Primary School has been actively involved in Green School's with An Taisce and later Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council since the Green School's Project began in 2001.  Over the years we have achieved Green Flags for the following:
· Reduce, Reuse Recycle - Litter and Waste
· Energy
· Water
· Travel
· Climate Change
.       Biodiversity
 
In May 2015 we received our 6th Green Flag for Biodiversity. The work for this flag began in 2012.  
 
What is Green Schools?
Green Schools is a Europe-wide project designed to encourage and acknowledge whole school action for the environment - at all scales from local to global.  Green Schools is both a programme and an award scheme.  The aim of the programme is to move from environmental awareness in the curriculum to environmental action in the school and wider community.  The Green School's Committee is the driving force of the project.  It strives to ensure that all the elements of the programme are adopted throughout the school.
Action Plan:  The Action Plan is at the core of the entire project.  It is linked to the school curriculum work.  It has realistic and achievable goals.
Two representatives from each class make up the Green School's Committee.  This Committee is led by Evelyn Doyle who is responsible for Green Schools in our school.  Gemma McCarthy represents the Special Need's Assistants and is responsible for litter management in the school.  Niamh Nally is the parent representative.  Meetings are held once a month  during the school year, and more often if a project like National Tree Week, Tidy Schools in the Community etc. comes on stream.
