6th Green Schools’ Flag

Clarecastle NS is in the process of applying for their sixth Green Schools’ Flag based on the theme Global Citizenship- Litter and Waste.

This school maintenance theme affords the students the opportunity to discover how the Green Schools work influences people and environments worldwide; while also revising litter and waste management.

The overall aim is to create a knowledge and understanding about the link between environmental degradation and human rights. It is a two year process which concludes in March 2019.
The new committee, formed in September 2017 consists of students from 1st to 6th class. The students meet once a month to discuss and plan upcoming events, conduct surveys and monitor our waste management. Compost waste and recyclable paper/plastic is collected from the classrooms on a daily basis. Litter picking occurs in the school grounds weekly. Students are encouraged to bring in old batteries and old phones from home so that they can be recycled in a controlled manner. Bird tables and feeders were set up during the winter months to look after our vulnerable feathered friends. A wild garden was set up in the school grounds in March to complement our Bug Hotel and we are currently observing natural wild flowers growing there.
