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 four green flags blowing proudly in the wind. These flags were awarded by An Taisce for our efforts in recycling, reducing our energy consumption and the amount of water that we use. We recently celebrated the success of gaining our Travel Flag. We're very excited to be chosen to have the front of our school as a 'School Zone'. We are delighted to see 'Safe Routes to School Programme' in progress. We now have pencil bollards at the front of our school. These aim to raise awareness among roads users that they're entering school environment & reduce speeds.
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). This academic year (2021/2022) we are commencing year one of our Biodiversity Theme.
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.
