Our school was presented with the prestigious Green Flag in a ceremony attended by staff and students. This was the culmination of two years hard work by staff and students.
In Méanscoil Mhuire, as well as a long tradition academic achievement, we encourage a social conscience and promote stewardship in our students. With this in mind we formed a green schools committee, whose goal was to secure a Green Flag for litter and waste. As a result of a waste audit and Questionnaire,we highlighted areas of concern particularly the use of bins In order to encourage recycling we introduced a user -friendly bin system with compartments for general waste, dry mix recyclables -bottles, cans clean paper. This has been successful in increasing recycling in our school.
