Green Schools


It’s 2017 and this year The Green Schools Committee is working on biodiversity, The Caring Crew is the name of the committee and their motto is ‘Defending Diversity’. They have been teaching all the children in the school about the birds and plants in the school environment. They also built a bug hotel.

St. Brendan’s Boys N.S. was awarded three Green Flags by An Taisce in 2010, 2012 and 2014 for the successful implementation of waste management and energy and water conservation programmes in our school. In 2016 we completed our work on the theme of travel and were awarded our 4th Green Flag. We encouraged children to come to school in an environmentally friendly and healthy way. Walking and cycling are most important but car pooling and using the bus are also good choices.
The committee chose the name The Travel Troop. WP_20141015_003 (1)

World Book Day

Today was World Book Day. We decided we should celebrate the day by dressing up. Lots of the children dressed up as characters from their favourite books and we saw some really creative costumes!! Each class also did a reading slot during the day that meant as a school we read continuously for the whole day!!

As we were also beginning our Weekly Walk to School this week we thought what better way to mark the beginning of it than with a walk in our costumes. Over 90 children walked to school from the cathedral and from Banogue. We will be continuing this walk every Wednesday from the same places and encourage as many students as possible to join us whenever they can. We want to encourage everybody to get more active and save our environment by using their cars less. To get you in the mood why not have a look at some photos from the day below, and for lots more photos from our different events why not check out our gallery page!
