Green Schools Green Flag

First Green Flag for TCS

greenflag2011_smOn Wednesday 25th  May, Ms Young and three students from our school Cian Ennis, Isabella Grace and Karen Sewell travelled to Croke Park to collect the Green Flag.  The flag and certificate was presented by Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, Pat Rabbitte.  This was indeed a very proud moment for our school as not many secondary schools in the country have received this prestigious award. 

On Thursday 26th May the school held a special ceremony at the front of school to raise the Green Flag. Mayor of Dublin South County Council, Maire Corr, was present to raise the flag along with members from the school’s  Board of Management. Nicholas Stanley and Chelsea Fagan added to the occasion by playing the trumpet and drums as the flag was being raised.  A great day was had by all.

A special word of thanks to all involved in the Green Schools programme. It could not have happened without the support and encouragement of all the staff, teachers, students and parents  of TCS.  Pics here
