Green-schools is an international environmental education Programme and award scheme that promotes and acknowledges long-term, whole-school action for the environment. Colaiste Muire has a wonderfully active and enthusiastic Green-schools committee and our school is extremely proud of its Green Flag. The Green-schools Programme offers our school many things, including :
- An opportunity to help develop students’ decision making skills
- The opportunity to build students’ confidence and sense of citizenship through participation
- A reduction of waste and litter, reduced energy and water consumption levels
- An improved school environment
We are aware that in order for the Programme to succeed, it requires the support of the Principal and Board of Management as well as the active involvement of staff. In Colaiste Muire, every support is given to the work of our Green-schools committee.
