In Kentstown NS we care about the environment and want to do our best to help keep it clean for ourselves and for future generations. As a result, we have decided to take part in the Green Schools programme to motivate and to create an awareness amongst our pupils, teachers, parents and other staff members.

What is Green Schools? 

Green-Schools is Ireland’s leading environmental management and education programme for schools.

Promoting long-term, whole-school action for the environment Green-Schools is a student-led programme with involvement from the wider community. The programme is operated and co-ordinated by the Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce (FEE member for Ireland).
