Green Schools Programme

Scoil Naomh Treasa has been involved in the An Taisce Green Schools programme for a number of years. We are very proud to have earned three separate Green Flags to date, for our work in the following areas.

• Litter & Waste - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
• Energy - Conserving Energy
• Water - Water Conservation

In 2018 we decided to embark on a new Green Flag - Travel. The programme will take two years to complete and to date lots of hard work has taken place. Caroline Murphy from An Taisce has been helping us along the way too. We have a very dedicated Green-Schools team. Staff members on the team are Ms Swinburne and Ms O'Mara.

The Travel theme is funded by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport and supported by the National Transport Authority.

Stepping into Spring!

Encouraged by the amount of children walking to school this past week, we all embarked on a brisk spring walk around the Racecourse promoting health, well-being and enjoying being active in the outdoors.

Recyclable Art

Well done to all our pupils who have been bringing in bottle caps to help us create an art display piece. Once completed we'll be sure to post some pictures here!
