Huge congratulations to Gemma and her wonderful Green School Committee who were instrumental in our school being awarded our third Green Flag for Water Conservation. Not only that, the inspector from An Taisce (Green Schools) was so impressed with the work done in the school that we have been named "Primary Water School of the Year, Dublin Region" for our work. Members of the Committee along with Colette and Gemma will attend a special award ceremony in the Hilton Hotel Kilmainham on 3rd May , where we will be awarded with a trophy and a cheque for €750. Thanks also to Paula and the Global Citizenship Committee, to Niamh and her Senior Infants who performed Eddie The Penguin for the inspector and to Heidi who helped Gemma with the committee. Most of all to the children in the school who care so much about how we treat our planet and most especially to the the hardworking, dedicated committee and to Gemma who together showed the passion they feel and the knowledge that they have to make this world a better place for all of us to live. Fantastic work all round. Peggy our Chairperson and Vivienne our Climate Change artist are also thrilled with the news and congratulate everyone involved.
