Ballinamore CS has a Green Schools Programme working very effectively and efficiently. The aim of our committee is to create awareness among students’, staff and the wider community of how their lifestyle choices can affect the environment.
The environment committees have worked hard throughout the years to achieve the following green flags: Waste and Litter Management, for Energy Conservation, Water Management, Travel and Biodiversity. We are now working towards our sixth flag for Global Citizenship- Litter and Waste.
Committees are made up of students across the six year groups and meetings are held on a regular basis to monitor and evaluate progress. Ms. Colum, Ms. Cooney and Mr. Mullen co-ordinate the Green Schools Committee which works with members of Ballinamore community in raising awareness of environmental issues.
