A little bit about our work: The Green Schools work on various themes in conjunction with An Taisce, Green Schools programme. We currently have flags for Litter and Waste, Energy and Water and are working on the themes of Travel and Marine Life. The committee is broken up into smaller committees so that there is a strong focus on each theme.
Duties of the committee are to raise awareness within our whole school community, to do research on behaviour and attitudes towards the environment and to educate and promote more responsible practices within our school.
Some of the activities we work on are: year group awards each term for litter and waste; monitoring of energy use; surveys on how we travel to school; how to help keep our beaches cleaner to protect marine life; the promotion of water bottles instead of using one-off plastics and keeping our school community updated on information and events through our the Donabate CC social media platforms. If anyone; student, parent or teacher is interested in knowing more about or working with Green Schools, please contact us.
