What is Green Schools ?

Pictured: Conor Lane, chairperson of the CBS Green School’s Committee telling students: ‘Our aim for the rest of the 2014 school year is to continue reducing out litter output with the help of the other local groups that work with us and of course to achieve the first Green Flag in the history of CBS Roscommon.’

The Green Schools Programme is one which encourages schools nationwide to become more aware of the environment, and to conserve the planet by making positive changes within the school community.
The ultimate goal is to achieve a Green Flag, which our recently accomplished, which will mark our efforts to ensure an eco-friendly environment.
We at the CBS follow the ethos “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” as it represents just some of the necessary actions we must undertake on a daily basis, to reduce the amount of waste consumption and litter produced within the school.
Students and teachers are committed to improving the school environment and are working together to ensure the school achieves a Green Flag in the near future.
