Green-Schools, known internationally as Eco-Schools, is an international environmental education programme, environmental management system and award scheme that promotes and acknowledges long-term, whole school action for the environment. Eco-Schools is operated by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) whose main partners include the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). We have implemented new school policies to adhere to the programme. Keep an eye on our Green School pages for all the updates.
The Department of Education and Skills wishes to recognise schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community by awarding them with the Active School Flag (ASF). Our school has registered for the process which requires us to review our current provision and to plan, implement and monitor improvements across a number of areas under the following broad headings- P.E., physical activity throughout the school day, partnerships and Active School Week.
