" Boys take steps on greener path. St Colman's earn First Green Flag."
Well done to everyone that helped us on our way! The rest of the report can be read below.
The cheering raised the rafters in St. Colman’s B.N.S. Kanturk last week as the much anticipated news arrived. The staff and boys of Kanturk had been awarded their first Green Flag.
The work carried out by the Green Schools Committee commenced early last year and a whole school effort ensued. With talks of a brand new school on the pipeline nothing radical was executed but many small changes turned our school inside out. We have many photos of ‘before’ and ‘after’ situations. All our
actions were sanctioned by school principal Mrs Eilish Finnegan.
As part of their presentation to the Green Schools Inspector the boys sang a song which the committee had penned;
‘We are the wise men
Working together for our first Green
We are the Wise man
And together we’re not bad!
All would agree that the boys of St. Colman’s B.N.S. are a credit to their parents and teachers. This experience has changed the way they think.
They are currently pooling ideas about how to celebrate the special occasion of raising their first Green Flag. A great day is being planned to celebrate this very worthwhile experience.
‘Coiscéim dearfach ar an mbóthar atá romhainn’ or positive footsteps
ahead for everybody in St. Colmans.
We will keep you posted!!
Congratulations to all on a job well
