Green-Schools, known internationally as Eco-Schools, is an international environmental education programme, environmental management system and award scheme that promotes and acknowledges long-term, whole school action for the environment.
St. Evin's School is a Green School.
April 2014: Big News! We have just been awarded our first Green Home/School Flag. This is a wonderful achievement for St. Evin's school. Well done to Mrs. Houlihan and the brilliant Green School Committee. Keep up the good work.
May 2014: Mr. Costello, Miss Fennelly, and 2 senior pupils, Samantha and Sarah, represented our school at the award ceremony in The Helix, DCU, Dublin, on May 20th. They were delighted to be honoured with the Flag at such a high level.
We have previously been awarded 5 Green School Flags for completion of each strand of the environmental programme.
The programme is co-ordinated by Mrs. Houlihan with the assistance of pupils from each class who are nominated to the Green School Committee.
Green Home was developed as a framework to support and advise householders on ways to save money on their household bills while protecting the environment. The programme focuses on the themes of waste, energy, water and transport and extends the Green-Schools message beyond the school gates into the wider community.
