St, Gerald’s College became involved in the An Taisce Green Schools Project in recent years. A committee was formed consisting of 1 staff member and 16 students. Since then the committee has worked very hard with the entire population of the school to promote greater awareness of environmental issues. The first phase of the project entailed recycling of material, litter clean ups, surveys and planting bulbs.
The hard work of all involved paid off in 2017 when the school was awarded a Green Flag.
A flag raising ceremony will take place on the grounds of the school in 2018.
Involvement in this project has promoted an awareness of our environment. We at St. Gerald’s DLS College wish to continue, in the years ahead, to ensure the presence of the Green Flag.
