Green School's News
Here at St. Michael's we are a very proud Green School. We've already obtained our Waste Flag, Our Energy Flag, Our Water Flag and most recently our Travel Flag. You will see three green flags blowing proudly in the wind. These flags were awarded by An Taisce for our efforts in recycling, reducing our energy consumption including the amount of water that we use. We hope to celebrate the success of gaining our Travel Flag in term one of the school year 2021/2022.
We got our first Green Flag-Waste Flag in 2015, followed by our 2nd Green Waste- Energy in 2017. In 2019, we got the Green Flag -Water and most recently we obtained our 4th Green Flag-Travel in June 2021. (We didn't let Covid-19 dampen our efforts).
As a Green School, we thrive to help create a healthy environment conducive to learning, while reducing waste, learning about reusing and recycling, saving energy and water and in turn we're helping our BOM save money. We care deeply about environmental issues, and wish to make a positive change to the environment around us. The Green-Schools programme provides an ideal way for fostering environmental awareness into the lives of all of us here at St. Michael's.
