Green Flags

Here at the Sacred Heart Primary School we have a very strong commitment to sustainable living. We have six green flags, something we are really proud of. They are for conservation in the areas of Litter and Waste, Energy, Water, Travel, the study of Biodiversity and Global Citizenship Litter and Waste. Respect for the world we live in, our environment and our natural resources is a priority for all of our school community.
We work towards Partnership, Participation, Progress and in doing so we consider that we are both local and global, we are citizens of an ever changing world. In order to further our citizenship and as part of our ethos studies we are familiarising ourselves with the Global Goals. These goals set out by the United Nations aim to improve the Earth’s environment and, as a result, the lives of everyone who share it. We are for people and planet, we are for Global Goals.
We were awarded our first Green Flag back in 2005 and our latest Green Flag in 2020. Our green journey has spanned more than 15 years. We hope you will follow our journey by keeping up to date with what we are doing here, on our twitter account  and on our Instagram sacredheartroscrea. Although covid19 has been challenging for everyone, we aim to keep up our dedication to the environment, our future depends on it.
