Carrigaline Community School is successful in achieving it’s first Green Flag (May 2016)
Carrigaline Community School has achieved it’s first green flag for Litter and Waste. The flag was raised in the school on Tuesday 17th of May by the County Mayor John Paul O’Shea.
The green school committee, which comprises of 11 students and 7 teachers, have worked together for the last two years to promote recycling and decrease the waste in the school. In that time they have completed a review of the school, created action plans to implement change. The committee organised a book swap shop, to promote recycling / reusing of books. They introduced battery recycling and ink recycling in the school. They have worked closely with Tidy Towns and completed litter picks and planting of flowers in the Carrigaline community. Well done to all involved, it is a great achievement.
