Green Schools

Green-Schools is Ireland͛’s leading environmental management and award programme, working with primary and secondary schools across the country.

There are a number of themes it focuses on.

We received our first Green Schools flag in summer 2023 after two years of work.

Litter and Waste

Litter & Waste is the first theme. It focuses on litter and waste issues, encouraging a sense of responsibility


Energy looks at the steps which can be taken at school to reduce energy consumption and raise awareness of climate change


This theme develops awareness around water conservation and how to effectively manage this important resource in schools


This theme aims to increase the number of students walking, cycling, scooting, using public transport or carpooling to school


Biodiversity looks at increasing awareness in schools of the importance of native plants, animals and habitats
