A little bit about our work:

The Donabate Community College Green Schools works on various themes in conjunction with An Taisce. At Donabate Community College we currently have flags For litter and waste, energy and water and we are currently working on receiving our travel flag.

The Green Schools committee have the duty to raise awareness within our whole school community and to look at the attitudes towards the environment. The green schools committee also work on promoting responsible practices within our schools.

During the school year, the green schools committee work on many activities such as monitoring energy and completing surveys on how students and teachers travel to school, promoting reusable water bottles instead of one-off plastic bottles.

The members of the Green Schools committee are split into sub–committees. This makes it much more efficient for the students to be able to thoroughly focus on each theme.
