“Green-Schools is Ireland’s leading environmental management and education programme for schools.
Promoting long-term, whole-school action for the environment Green-Schools is a student-led programme with involvement from the wider community.”
We are working hard to turn Scoil Chlíodhna green!! Our first Green School theme is Litter and Waste. Throughout the next two years, we are going to be working hard to educate our children and their families, as well as our local community in Carrigtwohill, in how to reduce, reuse and recycle so that we can become greener!
“Reducing the amount of waste we produce by re-using, repairing, composting, recycling and, most importantly, preventing waste in the first place, we can help to protect both our country and our planet for future generations.” www.greenschoolsireland.org
