Green Schools Committee

St. Patrick’s College Green School Committee are looking for new members for the current school year.   We are currently well on the way to achieving our second green flag – the Energy Flag.  We hope to have it by Spring 2021. 

Last year’s committee worked hard to raise awareness about how to reduce our energy costs in school.   The most important thing that students and teachers should do is turn off lights, computers and projectors when they are not in use.   The lights closest to the window should be permanently switched off – that way we can reduce our energy bills and get our An Taisce Green Flag.  Everyone can play their part!!
