Green Schools

Kilrane NS is very proud of all our children who are committed to our green school programme. (http://www.greenschoolsireland.org/)

We have, through much hard work and commitment, been presented with our ‘Litter and Waste’ flag, our ‘Energy’ flag and the global citizenship litter and waste flag.  All flags indicate the work of our committee and all the other pupils and staff.

The green school programme, again this year being led by teachers Sean Ryan and Eoghan Collins, is looking at ‘global citizenship energy’ and aims to gain yet another flag. 


Green-Schools, known internationally as Eco-Schools, is an international environmental education programme, environmental management system and award scheme that promotes and acknowledges long-term, whole school action for the environment. The aim of Green-Schools is to increase students’ and participant awareness of environmental issues through classroom studies and to transfer this knowledge into positive environmental action in the school and also in the wider community.
