The Green School at St. Kilian's
The Green-Schools project is a national initiative that seeks to create greener and more environmentally safe schools by developing and fostering environmental awareness among students. Green-Schools is a student-led programme and is operated and coordinated by the Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce, the National Trust for Ireland. The project operates in partnership with local authorities and is supported by various government departments.
St. Kilian’s became a Green School in 2010 and has since participated in numerous environmental projects and green initiatives. Our school has so far earned four Green Flags for exemplary environmental work in each of the prescribed areas.
At the heart of the Green School project is its committee which is composed of teachers and students from the Primary School, the Secondary School and the Lycée Français d’Irlande to ensure that the Green School project extends to all three tiers of the school campus.
