Some schools were receiving their first flag for Litter and Waste, while others were receiving their sixth flag for Global Citizenship - Litter and Waste. This flag demands that schools have maintained and improved their standards over a period of at least 12 years.
Stratford College was awarded our fourth flag for Global Citizenship - Marine Litter. It is a prestigious and well deserved award for our school community. After a successful inspection visit to our school involving an extensive audit of our plan, actions and results over the last two years we were awarded the flag.
I would like to thank all of our school community and in particular our phenomenal Green Schools committee with representatives from 1st-6th year for all their commitment and hard work.
In our current climate, Green Schools with a focus on Global Citizenship is core in educating and supporting our students in becoming responsible and active citizens.
We are awaiting our letter from An Taisce to inform us which flag we will be aiming for next. I hope to see our committee grow in numbers next year.
