Ireland: Green Flag
We always aim to fix your vehicle at the roadside. If we can't, would you like us to take you to a destination of your choice?
If your vehicle breaks down close to or at home, would you like us to come and help? Would you also like Personal Cover, which means you're covered if you're a driver or passenger in any vehicle? The school also held a cycling skills course for parents. Meanwhile, as part of efforts to gain the energy flag, the school lighting system was switched over to LED and monitoring of energy use through the school continues.
The project to gain a Green Flag for water resulted in the installation of dual flush toilets to reduce water consumption as well as a rainwater harvester for watering the award-winning school garden. Pupils have begun work on a wildflower garden and a nesting box for birds — the school already has an insect hotel in place — as part of their application for the fifth Green Flag, Biodiversity.
The Green Flag, Vols 1-3
Now the only thing that goes into that bin is paper and plastic. Food waste is now brought home by pupils for composting, cans are collected and recycled and milk cartons are also recycled, for example in art projects. And, instead of bringing plastic water bottles to school, children have reusable metal water containers on their desks. Pupils are in charge, and they come up with the ideas as to how to improve on these elements in the school and achieve each flag.
This month, the programme, operated by the Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce in partnership with local authorities, will award nearly primary and second-level schools with Green Flags at 18 separate award ceremonies around the country. The programme receives the support of a variety of organisations and government departments.

Of the nearly 4, schools registered with the programme, 3, have been awarded at least one Green Flag — and because the campaign started in Ireland some 21 years ago, some schools have by now earned all five of the green flags. Globally, the green-schools programme operates in 67 countries around the world and boasts some 14 million students participants.
