Thank you to all pupils and staff who have contributed in any way to our Green Schools Initiative over the past 2 years. We are thrilled today as we have just received a letter of confirmation by post to inform us that we have been successful in our application for the Green Flag Award. The award will be presented at a ceremony in Kilkenny in May. We have learned lots about water, its uses, its need, water conservation, water contamination and the struggle faced by children in other countries who don’t have easy access to water. We had a visit from Green Schools County Council Team who were very impressed with the work carried out by our Green Schools Committee and the whole school in general. Well done everyone!
