            Green Flag School
            We have set up a Green Schools Committee to work at making everyone in our school more conscious of
            recycling and saving energy. In May 2014 we achieved our first Green Flag for Litter and Waste. In May 2016
            we achieved our second Green Flag for Energy.  We are currently working towards achieving our next green
            flag for water. Students are encouraged to be part of this committee. Your involvement in this committee will
            make our school a Greener School.

            Student Council

            The student council consists of two representatives from each year, elected by the general cohort of students
            in the school. The Student Council meet regularly and work closely with the school leadership team to ensure
            that our school is a safe and enjoyable place for all members of our school community. The council strives to
            construct a positive learning environment for our students and gives them a platform to use their voice to raise
            issues and implement change. A member of staff will liaise with the Student Council and through the Council
            links will also be formed between the students and the Board of Management.
