12th October 2012

Today our Green Schools Committee raised for the first time all three green flag won by the school - water, litter and energy. The flag were raised by Pat jones, representing the staff, Thomas Ganley representing the students and Gary Brady, Longford Co Council (and past pupil who have been so supportive to the school.

We have also launched our campaign for our 4th flag - Transport. To begin this campaign we have established the Moyne Mile, three laps around the school building and the island. This will become a weekly event in the school. Other activities to highlight transport, costs and environmental issues will take place throughout the school year

Our school has been participating in the Green Schoolsí Programme for the last five years.  This year our
Green Schoolís Committee has applied for renewal of our Green Flag and we also hope to achieve an Energy Flag.

(1) 1st years - litter duty after break, supervised by Pat, Matt and a member of the studentsí Green Schoolís Committee.
