Green Schools

Green Schools Section

Welcome to our Green Schools section. Pupils and staff in St. Aiden's have been involved in the International Green Schools Environmental Programme for over 20 years! We have 11 green flag awards. Each flag awarded requires working on a new environmental theme, while sustaining work on previous themes.

The themes we are involved in are: Travel; Waste Management and litter  ....reuse, reduce, recycle; Water; Energy; Marine Environmentl; Biodiversity and Developing Global Awareness and Citizenship. We received our 11th Green flag in June 2022.  The theme was  Global Citizenship Food and Biodiversity. In 2023 we became Green School Climate Ambassadors. We worked on themes across compost, litter , biodiversity and water . We came 3rd in Ireland for our projects!

Pupils elect a new committee every two years.
