Green Schools Flag

Posted on : May 25, 2022

Our TY Green Schools Committee have had a very productive year and the whole group should be very proud of their many achievements. Litter and Waste was the first theme they chose to deal with, and they tried to find ways of eliminating litter and reduce waste output in the school. They organised recycling and general waste bins for the school and tried to instil in our school community a sense of pride and personal responsibility for the issues of litter and waste in SGS. This extended into the community and students were involved in many litter-picks in the town and were awarded a plaque by Sligo Tidy Towns in recognition of the work. They looked at reducing waste in our lives and focussed on issues such as clothes re-cycling, switching to soap and shampoo bars and using re-usable food wraps instead of cling film and tin foil. To do this they produced information videos and ran promotional drives for eco-friendly products. The school was awarded the Green Schools Flag and will fly it proudly as soon as we get a suitable flagpole! Well done all, and thanks to Ms Moore for her boundless enthusiasm and energy!
