26th February 2018

Dear Parents,

As you are all aware we are currently aiming to receive our 4th Green Flag for transport. Thank you so much to those of you who have done your best to participate in March on Máirt so far this year.

On Friday we will have our ‘Action Day’ in school. We would like to encourage all children to walk/cycle/car pool or park and stride to school on Friday as well as the usual Tuesday. Our aim is to have as few cars at the school as possible on Friday!

The children are asked to wear green to school on Friday and have ‘funky feet’. What we mean by funky feet is something unusual with their shoes! Maybe two different runners or shoes. Or the children might choose to revamp their runners altogether by adding jewels/ feathers or anything of their choosing!

Finally, if you want to join in at home, the children will be learning ‘Walking on Sunshine’ by Katrina and the Waves for Friday. So put it on and have a dance along!

Many Thanks for your continued support,

The Green Schools Committee.

The Green Schools Committee

The Green Schools Committee has started the year off running! We have begun the process to hopefully be awarded our third Green Flag

from An Taisce, the travel and transport flag. We will need all of your support over the next few months to help us become a greener school. We, as a school community will have to find ways to use our legs more and our cars less! So get the runners on, the scooters out and put the car keys away! We are very excited to see what the year holds.

March on Máirt

We are now working towards our next green flag, travel and transport. This flag aims to cut down on the amount of traffic that our school causes in the local community and encourages children to walk, carpool or park and stride to school on a daily basis. Members of our Green School Committee announced their plans at Friday's Assembly, 10th November.

As our school is not easily accessible by foot for many, we have arranged with the Golden Ball to allow us to ‘Park and Stride’ on Tuesdays. This means that all families will be encouraged to park at the Golden Ball and to walk the rest of the way to school.

The Green Schools Committee will be completing a weekly survey to see which class is the ‘greenest’ each week.

We would appreciate your continued cooperation with the initiative.
