We are very proud to be a Green School.  Each year a Green Schools committee is set up to promote environmental care and awareness throughout our school.

At present we are working towards achieving our eighth green flag.  The focus is on Global Citizenship- Marine Environment.

We have already been awarded green flags for the following:

1.Litter and Waste: This was our first theme. It focused on litter and waste issues and encouraging a sense of       responsibility in these areas.

2.Energy Awareness: We looked at the steps which can be taken at school to reduce energy consumption and       raise awareness of climate change

3.Water Conservation: We developed awareness around water conservation and how to effectively manage this     important resource in our school.

4.Travel: We aimed to increase the number of students/staff carpooling to school in particular.

5.Biodiversity: We increased our awareness of the importance of native plants, animals and habitats.

6.Global Citizenship-Litter and Waste: This enabled us to discover how work on Green-Schools has positively     influenced our global community.

7.Global Citizenship-Energy: We found out how our energy use has an impact on the global community.

We are now working towards our eighth green flag based on the theme of Global Citizenship – Marine Environment.  This theme gives us the chance to look at issues that impact the marine environment. This theme is close to our hearts here in Creevy NS as we are situated a few km from Rossnowlagh Beach and the Wild Atlantic Ocean. Our committee are already working on this theme and will post updates on our progress over the year. Part of the committee’s role is to help implement the seven steps to help us achieve our eighth flag.  But they must also remind us about separating our waste into the correct bins, turning off lights, closing doors and not running the water when unnecessary.

Here are our Green School Slogans:
