Saving water in action! Below are photos of committee members reading & recording our water meter. They also filled empty bottles with rice & placed them in the non dual flush toilets to prevent the cisterns filling unnecessarily after each flush.
We had our Water Action day on Friday 11th October 2019. As normal we made sure we saved water in every possible way - i.e. no taps running, no dishwasher on, kettle only boiled once at each break etc.. We also had Una from Global Action Plan who ran Water Wise workshops for the whole school. The students learned lots and found it very interesting.
As part of our 'Energy Saving Day' Thursday 26th October was a reduced energy day. We had a massive saving of 19kwh compared to the following day as we only used 4 units on the Thursday.
Members of our Green school committee attended a Water work shop recently. Full Steam ahead for our Water Flag!!
Great excitement as this 'famous' current Tipperary Hurler raised our 3 green flag this time for energy saving. A fantastic day for the school.
A special presentation from some of our 'Green School' committee students was made in June to Ross & Mark for all the wonderful help they give the green school committee - much appreciated by students and staff.
3 of our students had a wonderful day in Athlone receiving another Green Flag for our school - well done to all students on this great achievement.
