Sixth green flag for St Senan’s school

ST Senan’s hoisted their sixth green flag last week, for work done on environmentally-friendly travel.
School principal, Sally O’Neill said it was a proud moment for the school. “Róisín Ní Gháirbhith of An Taisce would have visited a few times during the year. In other years, we wouldn’t have had a representative coming, just the assessors. In the last two terms, we were doing Walk on Wednesday. Teachers would have met children at different points and walked to school with them. Parents were involved in it too. We had a bike shelter installed in front of the school and there is a cycling event taking place on June 16 and we’ll be involved in it.”
Parents and grandparents of the children were also involved in the work, while retired teacher Mrs Kirby, who was involved in getting the Green Schools Programme going at the school, was invited back for the flag-raising last Thursday.
Ms O’Neill said that there was a great atmosphere at the school on the day the flag was raised and she said there has been a very good effort made.
“Margaret Murphy was the co-ordinator and she has been in that role for the last few years. Children were involved across the board – from infants up.”
St Senan’s also got their fourth Primary Science Award this year.
