  Biodiversity 2014




Thursday the 21st of May was a proud day for The Infant School - the day we were awarded our fifth Green Flag for Biodiversity. Unfortunately we weren't allowed to bring all of the pupils from the Green Schools committee to the ceremony in the Helix DCU because there were so many other schools getting their Green Flag on the day so it was decided that Ms Harkin, Ms Roche, Aoife,Erdal and SNA Breda would represent our school in DCU on Thursday afternoon.On arrival, we were asked to sign the Green Wishing Tree and pose for a photograph with a Green Flag and An Taisce's mascot

 Again well done to our staff and pupils for all the hard work over the past 18 months in undertaking lots of green’ initiatives in the school. Well Done Everyone !
