The PTA would like to congratulate Gemma and our Green School Committee who were recently awarded our third Green Flag, for Water Conservation. In addition, Esker ETNS was named “Primary Water School of the Year, Dublin Region" winning a trophy and a cheque for €750, which Colette, Gemma and some members of the committee will receive on May 3rd. What a fantastic achievement! Well done to all involved.
Here is our new Green School Committee members for 2015/16. This is an important year as we are into our second year for Energy and we will be looking to achieve this target by the end of the year. We have to show that we are helping the school community to be aware of how much energy that they are using and to try and save as much as we can. This includes:
- Turning off the light when not needed.
- Switching off electrical items in class when not being used
- Not blocking radiators
- Being aware that if we all make small changes we CAN make a difference.
We are still maintaining our reduction in litter and waste and do regular litter picks!
