Greetings from the Green Schools Committee. This is our final newsletter of the summer term. We have had a very busy and productive year.
We attended the Grow Awards in the Crown Plaza in Dundalk and received our four star environmental award as well as third place in the Eco Tribes Medieval Garden challenge. There were a lot of beautiful projects submitted from other schools and the standard was very high. We were very pleased with our result and expect to improve on this next year.
The bio diverse hedge is thriving and there are considerably more butterflies and insects around because of the greater number of wild flower species. The insects are making excellent compost as well.
The current green flag that we have been working on is Global Citizenship. There is a renewed emphasis on recycling, monitoring our energy consumption as well as conserving water in school and at home. We will be focusing on projects on fair trade on how our demand for commodities like tea or coffee can affect the world on many different levels. We are all responsible for how our actions can affect the planet and it all starts on a local level.
Regards, The Green Schools Team.
