Global Citizenship Flag!
The Sixth Green Flag Award Ceremony
On the 12th of June, 2015 the green team were happy to announce that our school has received our 6th green flag and only 5 schools in Ireland have achieved this!!! We first went outside and we started our celebrations at the front of the school. Two people, one junior infant and one sixth classer helped to take down our 5th green flag and put up our 6th green flag. Straight after that, we had our assembly in the hall which started with a few words from Eamon Ryan, the leader of the Green Party! After him we had a few words from the Green Team about what we did during the year to make our school a greener place. Then we sang a rap (the green code) fantastically written by Tom, a sixth class green team representative. It combined all the lessons that our school has learned about the environment over the last 16 years. We needed a new green code because the school already had one but it was from a few years ago and mentioned that we put our food waste in the bin and now we bring all our waste home! This is a perfect example of how our school has become a greener school in the last couple of years. Later we had a few cheers for everyone who participated in this event! Then for the grand finale 3rd and 4th class sang a beautiful song about the environment written by David! Afterward the Green Team enjoyed a well earned pizza party for all of their hard work. We are very proud at C.E.T.N.S. to have earned our 6th green flag. Thanks for reading! By Radi in 5th Class
