Knockskeagh awarded its 6th Green Schools Flag

Green Schools Flag

Last week, we received our 6th  Green Flag for our school. This flag was for Global Citizenship; Litter and Waste. 

This theme enables schools to discover how their work positively influences our global community.

We worked very hard in several areas in order to receive this flag, but the biggest achievement we had was in reducing single-use plastic bottles within the school by a massive 88%!

We also made an improvement in litter and waste management by reducing general food waste and packaging in our lunchboxes.

Lastly, we looked at the different cultures that exist within our school community, and we held a Culture Day in May 2019 to celebrate some of these cultures.  

Well done to all involved for all their hard work and to Claire O’Regan for coordinating the submission.
