The Green Committee
January 9, 2018
The Green School Committee have spearheaded a whole school approach to recycling and reducing waste this year. Hundreds of students and staff have embraced a ‘reusable’ water bottle policy in an effort to minimise plastic waste, much of which ends up in seas and oceans with a detrimental effect on marine wildlife. First years also attended the award winning ‘Bin It! Roadshow’ to explore the impact that littering has on society and the economy. Four TY students were chosen by ‘An Taisce’ to become Irish Water Ambassadors and attended a workshop in Dublin where they carried out research and training on the importance of water conservation. Well done to all!
