We are now working towards gaining our 4th Green flag for the Travel theme. We will still maintain our litter and waste, energy and water themes, conserving energy and water while keeping our environment litter and waste free. We now have Mrs Furlong as co-ordinator and some new people on our Green Schools Committee along with some ‘old’ faces!
Last November 2015, Noleen Doyle visited Ballycullane N.S. to talk to us about our Travel theme. She is the Green Schools Travel Education Officer. We completed a survey with her about how we travel to school each day. The results can be found by clicking the PDF link below:
In January, Noleen returned and the Green Schools Committee carried out a Walkability Audit. This was to see how walkable our footpaths are in the village. Please look at the results below by clicking on the link.
Noeleen returned to see us again in the summer term in June to carry out a cyclability audit with our Green School’s committee. They did this to:
1. To identify positive aspects of a popular cycling route to the school.
2. To identify any negative aspects of a popular cycling route to the school.
3. Inform the school community about pupils cycling to school.
