Green School News

This week we were delighted to receive the news that we had successfully earned our 4th Green Flag for all our work on sustainable travel. Over the last 2 years our committee have led the school encouraging everyone to walk and cycle to school, to park and stride at the village or where possible to carpool. This has the effect of reducing cars on the road and therefore green house gases from burning fuel which have such a negative effect on our natural world.

Our actions over the Last 2 Years

  • WOW Days

  • Scooter Work Shop

  • Walkability Audit- Travel Surveys

  • New bike shelter installed thanks to a grant from Mayo Co.Co

  • Liaising with BKD Dev Co-partners in completeing the path to the village

  • Poster Competition

  • Cycling Safety Course

  • Speed Survey of traffic going to school

We have increased our numbers walking and cycling to school by 13%!!!
