GREEN FLAG CEREMONY
In a lovely coincidence we had our Dress Up Day on the same day as our Flag Raising for our new Energy Flag from Green Schools Ireland. It may explain the costumes in the video. We are very proud of all the work accomplished by our Green Schools Committee and indeed by our whole school community. We were delighted to welcome Senator Róisín Garvey to help us raise the flag along with Green School representative Declan and the ever dependable Eamon. Well done to all involved!
Clean COASTS NATIONAL SURVEY
Our Green Schools Committee went on a survey of the estuary as part of a Clean Coasts national survey. They spent their time identifying and collecting data on animal and plant species, pH levels, litter, water quality and more. We are very excited to continue to work towards earning our Green Flag for water this year. #GreenSchools
We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a green flag for energy! The energy flag looks at the steps which can be taken to reduce energy consumption and raise awareness of climate change issues. We were praised for all the work accomplished in this area by our students and staff and especially our Green Schools Committee! We want to say a big thank you to everyone involved in the continued effort to make The Comp a greener place to be. We look forward to raising our new flag in September!
Leave No Trace Workshop
We have been very active in our recent #CompGoesGreen campaign and that continued with our workshop today with thanks to the Green Schools Committee and Ms. Kelleher. A big thank you to Clare CoCo and Daithí Lavelle from ‘Leave No Trace’
who held a workshop with TYs on the concept of Leave no Trace and how to reduce our impact on the environment around us. Our students enjoyed learning from Daithí and his knowledge on all things environmental and they completed their workshop with a litter pick in the new Town Park. We look forward to working with them again in the future to continue our educational journey. Leave No Trace Ireland
