What is Green Schools?
Green Schools , Known internationally as Eco-Schools, is an international environmental education programme, environmental management system and award scheme that promotes and acknowledges long-term, whole school action for the environment.
The aim of Green schools is to increase students’ and participant awareness of environmental issues through classroom studies and to transfer this knowledge into positive environmental action in the school and also in the wider community. Schools that have successfully completed all the elements of the programme are awarded the ‘Green Flag’. This award has now become a well-recognised Eco-Label. The award has to be renewed every two years.
More information on Green Schools can be found on their website:
We in Monaseed National School are hoping to go for our first Green Flag ‘Litter and Waste’ this year.
