Awards

Green Schools Award

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.

 

Green Schools – Working together for a sustainable future

Here at Knockskeagh NS, we recently received our 6th Green Flag for the
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 our biggest achievement 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.
