Here are some photos of the committee cleaning the school grounds.
Global Citizenship and Energy Survey
The committee have conducted a survey in school to gather information on energy and global awareness among our pupils. We agreed that we should extend this survey to parents and the wider community and would appreciate any feedback given. All information taken from the survey is anonymous and it is a very short survey of ten multiple choice questions. Please click on the link below to begin.
Thank you for all your help,

Meet Our Green School Committee
The Green School Committee has been working very hard to make our school a green, eco-friendly space.
The committee members are as follows: Henry, Ellie, Ava W, Alan, Caoimhe, Ava M, Jessica, Kate, Ryan E, Georgina, Rian, Gary, Sophie B-C, Sean, Brogan, Katie, Aoife, Rebecca, Naomi, Mia, Emmet, Michael, Riagan, Callum, Paddy, Cian, Ruby Mae, Tamika, Arya and Daniels.
We have dedicated teams devoted to the areas of litter, energy, travel, water biodiversity and global citizenship.
We decided, in our meetings, to dedicate the last Friday of every month to tidy the school grounds. One squad will tidy during the weeks in between.
Please take a look at some of the hard work we have been doing!
Our pro-active Green School Committee designed an educational presentation for assembly. They spoke with confidence and clarity and really enjoyed the experience.
The committee decided to record the presentation for our school website as a way of educating the school and community of the little things we can all do to be more GREEN! They had lots of fun doing so.
Please feel free to take a look.
Our Green School Committee is made up of sixth class pupils. This provides sixth class with an opportunity to work together as a team and give something back to their school in the final year.
The committee meets on a consistent basis (every Friday, if possible) to discuss issues in the school. A chairperson and a secretary are chosen on a rotation basis and respect and individual contribution are encouraged in each meeting. Meetings are very much student lead and are conducted under the supervision of Mrs. Donnellan and Ms. Holman. Students feel a real sense of ownership and reward in directing the meetings themselves.
Current committee members (2015/2016) are as follows:
Each and every student is passionate about their environment and making their school and community the environmentally friendliest that it can be.
