HAROLD BOYS' GREEN SCHOOLS BLOG
"EVERY ANIMAL, Plant and Tree - That's Biodiversity"
- Harold Boys' National School Biodiversity Slogan
From Ronan Prior 6th class
We are starting this blog to keep everyone in our school community up-to-date with our Green Schools work in Harold Boys'. We are focusing on the theme of Biodiversity this year. Our Action Plan is also available through the links on the side menu. All our Green Schools news will appear here throughout the year so be sure to check in regularly to see how we are getting on!
Our Progress SO Far
We are very proud to have earned four green flags so far: Litter and Waste, Energy, Water and Travel. This year we are aiming for our fifth. Our theme this time is Biodiversity.
The slideshow above shows some of our highlights from last year's work. We had a great year as we finished third in the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown Tidy Schools Competition, featured in a segment on RTE's News 2day programme, hosted the Bin Your Litter Game at the end of a Gum Litter march with other local schools in the Dalkey area, built a bug hotel for our school garden, painted a new Litter and Waste themed mural in our school yard and put up a window display of recycled Christmas decorations in Roberts of Dalkey. Phew!
With the involvement of our students, staff, parents and local community, we hope to have another very successful year of Green Schools activities in Harold Boys'.
