Green Flag Renewal Visit

Green Flag Renewal Visit

The Green Team had a very important meeting this morning with our Green Flag Renewal Assessor, Sinéad Fox, from Fingal County Council. We are aiming to achieve our 10th Green Flag for the theme Global Citizenship Food and Biodiversity. Margaret Condon from Castleknock Tidy Towns was also in attendance as we work together on many community planting activities.

The girls and boys were most enthusiastic and passionate in sharing all of their amazing environmental awareness knowledge. The Green Team told Sinéad all about school activities organised to explore the theme to deepen knowledge - Harvest Hunts, harvesting, awareness surveys, slogan competition to find our Green Code, community planting with Castleknock Tidy Towns, whole school planting, Biodiversity STEM projects for Science Week, releasing newts into our school pond, school wormery, SEAI sustainable energy workshops, Harvest Week, climate change projects, whole school competition to find the best design to paint our school wormery and our very recent whole school planting of fruit, vegetables and pollinator friendly flowers!

We told Sinéad about other events that tied into our theme like the Heritage Ireland Lego builds, some sustainable Young Engineers Award projects and Biodiversity Intel Mini Scientist projects.

Andreas and the Green Team also brought Sinéad all around our school. She was delighted to see our biodiversity slogan wall, sensory garden, green school noticeboard, polytunnel, swift nestboxes & bird feeders in our outdoor classroom, school pond, orchard, wormery and our recent planting.

We will hear the result in the coming weeks.

Well done to the Green Team for all of your enthusiasm today!
