Green Schools

Scoil Mhuire gan Smál is proud to have been awarded 8 Green Flags!

We have been involved with An Taisce’s Green Schools Programme since 2004. The Green Flag is awarded to schools for improving their environment. The Green Flag is an international award and is called Eco-flag in other countries.

The themes for the Green Flag are structured as follows:

1. Litter/ waste management
2. Energy
3. Water
4. Travel/Transport
5. Biodiversity
6. Global Citizenship – Litter & Waste
7. Global Citizenship – Energy
8. Global Citizenship – Marine Environment
9. Global Citizenship – Travel

Great credit goes to Ms Hourihane who, along with her newly-elected committee each year, does Trojan work in all things environmental!
