Welcome to our Green Schools page.
Green Schools is Ireland’s leading environmental management and education programme for schools. The Green Schools flag is awarded to schools that successfully create a healthy environment for learning, while saving energy, environmental resources and money.
This student-led action aims to achieve a sustainable environment and runs over the course of 2 years.
