Working together for a sustainable future

Our Green Schools programme is long-established at St Patrick's NS.  Over several years, we have been awarded Green Schools Flags  for a wide range of themes.

Our first Green Flag was awarded in 2005, when the theme was

  • ​litter and waste

We still use the motto composed at that time... We don't want pollution. Let's be the solution!''.  Our team was led by Gillian Sheil, the flag was presented by Minister Dick Roche,TD, and it was raised at our school by acclaimed gardener Diarmuid Gavin.

Over the years, themes have also included:

  • energy

  • water

  • travel

  • biodiversity

  • global citizenship - litter and waste.
