Green Schools Initiative

In Carysfort National School we are committed to the Green Schools Programme.  So far, we have been awarded the

  1. Litter & Waste flag
  2. Energy flag
  3. Water flag
  4. Travel flag
  5. Biodiversity flag

We are currently working for our Global Citizenship Litter and Waste Flag.

This theme helps the children understand how their work on the Green-Schools programme has an effect on people and their environments worldwide. It also revises the Litter and Waste theme with the whole school.

At the moment we are running a competition for the children to design a poster highlighting one way to achieve one of these targets:

  • Reduce the use of single use plastic.
  • Reduce food waste
  • Reduce paper waste.
  • Reduce “stuff” waste (lost property)

Please feel free to help your child to research slogans and talk about how important this is for the future of the planet.

We would like to draw your attention to an app called “refill Ireland” which shows where you can get your water bottle refilled for free.

Also if you would like to share ideas or let us know about other useful initiatives, please feel free to leave a note in the suggestion box in the school office.
