New Initiative gets underway
Our school achieved its first Green Flag for Litter and Waste in 2011 and is now in the process of applying for its second green flag, the Energy flag. We will be looking at ways to save energy in the school and will be carrying out an environmental review of the whole school. This will involve recording our ESB and Gas meters daily, carrying out an energy audit of all the electrical appliances in the school and an energy survey among all students and staff.
From our Environmental Review we will put in place an Action Plan which will define clear goals that we will need to achieve in order to satisfy An Taisce requirements for the Energy Flag. At present, the school is working very hard to achieve these targets.
