Green Schools


St. Kilian’s Junior School has successfully achieved Six Green Flags:

  • Litter and Waste (2009)
  • Energy (2011)
  • Water (2013)
  • Transport (2015)
  • Biodiversity (2017)
  • Global Citizenship (2019)

We have been awarded our sixth Green Flag on the Global Citizenship – Litter and Waste Theme. We have learned how our actions locally influence people and environments around the world. We have reduced our waste going to landfill by 20% this year.

Raising our 6th Green Flag

Ruth Gaj-McKeever from An Taisce visited our school in  March 2019 for our Green Flag Renewal visit. She met with the Green Committee. She was very impressed with our efforts to achieve our sixth Green Flag. Ms. Lehane completed the application form for our sixth Green flag in March and submitted it to An Taisce.

We proudly raised our sixth green flag on 13th June 2019 with the help of Yvonne, Helen and our wonderful lotto ladies. It was a lovely occasion. The children from second class performed a number of songs and the whole school joined in. Sincere thanks to Ms. Lehane and the Green Committee for all their hard work in securing the flag.
