Our Green School Journey
Our pupils are currently involved in the Green Schools Programme. We pride ourselves on being a green school and we have just been awarded our eight green flag -
Our pupils have undertaken extensive project work in the area of Global Citizenship and Climate Change. The children have explored areas such as energy conservation, renewable energy, fossil fuels, sustainable food production, One World, Fairtrade, climate change and the marine environment and acid rain. The senior pupils have created some superb animations with these topics in mind. The pupils have had many invitations and opportunities to present their projects and animations at school assemblies, the Young Sientist in Mary Immaculate and at Climate Change Conferences.
There are a number of "green related" activities taking place in the school at present.
