Loreto Senior Primary School take part in the An Taisce Green Schools programme. We are very proud to have earned four Green Flags to date, for our work in the following areas:

  • Litter and Waste
  • Water
  • Electricity
  • Travel

We have an active Green Team who attend regular meetings and come up with ways which will make our school a greener one. The Green Team committee members keep their classes up to date after every meeting.

Here are our Green School Goals:

  • We endeavour to keep our school and grounds as tidy and litter-free as possible.
  • We remember that when it comes to water, every drop counts!
  • Conserving energy is important. When it’s bright, switch off the light!
  • We encourage all our pupils to come to school in a green way. It’s great for the environment and our fitness levels too!

We recently received our fourth green flag for our work on the travel theme. We encouraged everyone to come to school in a green way and we succeeded in reducing the amount of people who travelled to school by car or bus significantly. Our WOW (Walk on Wednesdays) and SOW (Scoot on Wednesdays) initiatives were very popular and great fun too. A big congratulations to the Green Team on all their hard work!
