Green Schools News!

 Over the past year the Green School Committee has been tirelessly working to achieve our 5th Green Flag for Biodiversity. This year we will be continuing with this process. Since September we have elected our new Green Schools Committee and have been revisiting our goals from our previous four flags. (We already have the Waste, Energy, Transport and Water flags under our belts!)

As Halloween is just around the corner, we have a special surprise planned for the children of our school!  A Zombie Walk will be held on Friday morning (27th October) weather permitting. We will start from the car park of St. Brigid’s Church and proceed to the school grounds, to get us back into the habit of walking to school and leaving the cars at home. The children are encouraged to dress up in their Halloween costumes for the event too.

As an added bonus, any child who creates their own homemade costume out of recycled materials will be entered into a competition to win an extra special prize for all their hard work!

 The parents and children will meet in the church car park and at 8:40 am sharp the Zombie Walk will then proceed to the school grounds. All children from Junior Infants upwards must be accompanied and supervised by their parents or guardians on this walk.

Can’t wait to see you there!

Have a happy, fun and safe Zombie Walk and Halloween Break!

 The Green School Committee
