4th Green Flag

Our 4th Green Flag was raised by Séan Hartigan of an Táisce on Friday 12th of June. This flag was for sustainable travel. Everybody in the school has been making a huge effort to walk, cycle or park and stride to school for the last two years. Mrs McCabe and the Greenschools committee led the way aided by Sean from an Táisce. 

The event kicked off at 12pm with music on recorders by 4th class. Ms Brophy then addressed the large crowd of students, past and present staff members, parents and invited guests. Mrs McCabe then told us about all the hard work done by the Greenschools committee and thanked the parents for their contribution. Filip from the Greenschools committee spoke about his experience on the committee and encouraged others to get involved. Finally Sean and the members of the committee rose the flag to cheers from the crowd. We finished up by singing our travel theme tune "Walkin Funk" written by Philip and Ephrin 6th class.
