Our first green flag!

We were delighted to receive a letter from An Taisce this morning to inform us that our school has been successful in our application for our first Green Flag for Litter and Waste! Burncourt NS is now a Green School!

Our Green Schools Committee have worked very hard throughout the past two years to reduce litter and waste in our school, and we were delighted to win first prize in the Tidy Schools Competition last summer. Our school is kept in excellent condition thanks to the work of our Green schools team!
They have implemented many strategies to reduce waste in our school, including a traffic light system of counting the amount of litter and waste found in the yard. Each week there is a different Green School team in charge of keeping our yard litter free. They also organised our Green School day of action which included a fashion show of recycled materials! 

On Tuesday May 10th three representatives from our Green School Committee will travel to Hotel Kilkenny to receive our Green Flag. On Friday 13th May we will host a ceremony at 1.30pm to raise our flag. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Well done everyone, a fantastic achievement by all!
