Green Schools Committee - update

Our Greenschools committee has had a busy few weeks during this first term of school. We are currently in the process of renewing our Litter and Waste flag while also applying for the Energy Flag.  

Our committee, composed of students from all years in the CBS have been working tirelessly since last year to achieve our goals.

Members of the core committee have been assigned roles in which they will take ownership of certain tasks to aid the school in completing our action plan.

Ruairi Murphy, Adam Daniels, Colm Collins, Nour Morabye, Oisin Conway, Conor Morrissey, Conor Farrell, Eamonn Devereux, Cathal Flanagan, Fintan George, Emmett Tierney and Jack Clarke are pictured here with their Greenschools Coordinators Mr. Macmahon, Ms. Moroney and Ms. Kennedy.

Three of our diligent Leaving certificate students have assumed the following roles; Ruairi Murphy – The head of Greenschools, Adam Daniels – Deputy Head of Greenschools, Colm Collins– Digital and Social Media Communication officer. The list of all students as well as their list of duties are displayed on our greenschools noticeboard. We also have a sub committee of Transition Year students to help our core committee carry out important tasks.

The Green-Schools programme gives pupils an opportunity to take ownership of an environmental issue and create a positive change in their local community. Taking an active role in achieving an international environmental award is a prestigious achievement and will be a notable addition to a pupil’s curriculum vitae.
