Castleiney National School Receive Green Flag

Congratulations to the pupils and teachers of Castleiney NS who were awarded there first Green Flag Award by An Taisce during the week. Green-Schools, known internationally as Eco-Schools, is an international environmental education programme, environmental management system and award scheme that promotes and acknowledges long-term, whole school action for the environment.
Unlike a once-off project, it is a long-term programme that introduces participants (students, teachers, parents and the wider community) to the concept of an environmental management system. However, Green-Schools is far more than just an environmental management system. 

The flag will be presented to them at a ceremony in Athlone on the 23rd May.
