Green Schools

Litter and Waste

Mr. Gurhy’s 4th Class had a fun afternoon recently attending the Gum Litter Taskforce in Blanchardstown Centre.


Green Flag Ceremony

We had the pleasure of hosting some important guests for our official flag-raising ceremony for the Green School Flag that we were awarded in May. Deputy Varadkar, Minister Chambers, and Minister O’Gorman, Senator Currie, Councillor Walsh, and our very own Councillor Shovlin were all in attendance. All pupils and staff gathered in front of the school at the flag poles. The Green School Committee members started the even by welcoming all our guests. We had a number of speeches where the efforts of the Green school committee were commended. The pupils and staff were thanked for taking on the challenge of reducing our litter and waste to earn us our First Green Flag. 

The Show Choir gave a wonderful performance before we raised the flag. Deputy Varadkar (a past pupil of the school) had the honours of being the official flag raiser. We are delighted to have earned our first flag and are already thinking ahead to the next Green School challenge.

We were delighted to welcome Angela, Marie and Trisha from Blanchardstown Tidy Towns to our school.

We did some planting together and can’t wait for our next project with them.


Fingal County Council sponsored a day of workshops with Dale Treadwell and we learned lots about the trees around our school, wildlife and planted some holly with him.

Our students have been out in the community doing litter picking recently.
