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 10 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 10th Green flag in June 2020 and we are now working towards our 11th Green Flag. The theme is Global Citizenship Food and Biodiversity
Pupils elect a new committee every two years.
Congratulations to Ms Moriarty, Green School co-ordinator, the Green School committee and all the children and staff on achieving the 11th Green Flag. The theme for this flag was Biodiversity and Food. Well Done Everyone!

The children in the Junior room went on a nature walk and saw many interesting things. The local Garda even stopped for a chat!
The pupils researched to find out about palm oil and its impact on deforestation of the Rain Forests of the World. They found out some very interesting facts. Read all about it below.
