The Green School committee was successful in its application to Galway Co Council for Agenda 21 funding. This scheme is aimed at schools and community groups to help address many issues including environmental ones.
The grant of €850 was put towards the first green flag action plan for litter and waste reduction in the school. Bins for Paper Recycling and bins for Plastic Bottles were purchased.
An awareness campaign is planned for the new year with the help of the SPHE classes and poster competitions.
The green school committee are delighted with this grant allocation as it has helped in the implementation of their action plan on litter and waste management.
