Flying the Green Flag!
St. Peter's N.S. is a Green School.
We were awarded our first Green Flag for litter and waste in 2009.
We were awarded our second Green Flag for the theme of Energy in 2011! A huge amount of work was undertaken in achieving this award. Among the activities which took place were: a draft excluder competition, a poster competition, a switch it off campaign, energy workshops and a visit from Guzzler on our "No Energy Day of Action." Our Green Schools Committee were paying surprise visits to classrooms to see if we were turning off lights and appliances when we were leaving the room. They were very busy recording results! A big thanks to all the pupils and staff! We were presented with the Green Flag in the Croke Park Conference Centre on the 24th of May. Robyn and Allanah were the two lucky committee members chosen to attend! Minister for Education, Mr. Ruairi Quinn, raised the Green Flag for us on what was a memorable occasion.
Since then, we have been awared Green Flags for Energy, Travel, Water Conservation, Biodiversity and will collect our 6th Green Flag for Global Citizenship and Litter on Wednesday, 22nd of May in DCU. Thanks to Ms. H. Horan and the Green School's Committee for all their hard work over the past number of years.
We will be raising our 6th Green Flag on Friday, 14th of June before our Intercultural Day. Our former principal, Ms, Joan Quinn will be raising the flag on the day. Thanks again to Ms. H. Horan, our Green Schools' Committee and all the staff, pupils and parents of St. Peter's for their hard work and dedication.
