There are 145 schools in Fingal registered in the Green Schools Program. Click Here for more information on Green Schools
An Taisce in co-operation with the Local Authorities run the national Green Schools program, it is an 9-flag program. Schools must carry out education and a number of tasks and environmental projects to be incorporated into everyday school-life. The themes are:
Litter & Waste Energy Water Travel Biodiversity
Global Citizenship Litter & Waste Global Citizenship Energy
Global Citizenship Marine Environment Global Citizenship Travel
Each flag has to be maintained as the school progresses towards the new flags. Fingal County Council assists the schools by providing information and support and environmental presentations to the students. In Feb/ March we also carry out all the Green Flag Assessments. Each year around May about 40 Fingal schools receive a new Green Schools Theme Flags.
We congratulate all the schools on their efforts – the green schools coordinators and committees, the teachers and students and caretakers and all involved put in a lot of work to make this possible.
