Green Schools

Green-Schools is an international environmental education programme, which enables schools to take environmental issues from the curriculum and apply them to the day-to-day running of their school.

At Brannoxtown CNS, we are working towards our first flag for Litter and Waste. Our Green School Committee have written a Green Code and are working on reducing our waste across the school.

So far this year we have been working hard to earn our Green Schools flag by:

  • attending regular meeting,
  • identifying the school’s ‘litter black spots’,
  • picking litter,
  • monitoring the school’s waste.

Our Next Steps are to:

  • encourage ‘Naked lunches’ at our school,
  • have a ‘Week of Action’,
  • have a book swap session to encourage reusing our reading books.

 

Here are some resources you might find useful to use at home:
