Green School


Templeogue College’s green school’s committee has been working very hard, since September, to implement the school’s Action plan for our first Green flag for Litter and Waste. We were excited to have been awarded our Green Flag by An Taisce in April 2020 having appeared on RTE News 2Day in January 2020.

Below are some highlights of the actions that the students have carried out to date:

  • A rota for bin stewarding has been implemented for the canteen and Junior yard, for lunchtimes. All first years get an opportunity to steward the bins in the junior yard. Green schools committee members steward the bins in the canteen. Uncontaminated recycling waste is being collected from four bins, in these areas, every lunchtime.
  • The Development Education class in 4th year are managing and monitoring the “Canteen goes Green” project. This will involve 75 students in 4th year over the course of the year. The canteen are reducing waste by replacing disposable cardboard chip boxes with ceramic bowls or serving food to student’s in their own lunchboxes. Each 4th year student is involved at lunchtime, in rotation, stewarding the trolley for bowls and the new compost waste bins. Due to the increase in organic waste being collected, the school will now start a regular brown bin collection with our waste disposal company.
  • A tally survey of student’s waste disposal in the canteen and junior yard took place in November, by green school committee members. The results of this survey will be compared with a similar tally that took place last March. A comparison analysis of the results will take place in January by some 2nd year Maths students for their Maths CBA.
  • New coloured pictorial signs were designed and erected for all corridor recycling and general waste bins. These signs inform students of which rubbish type can be put in the corresponding bins.

A big thank you to all the green school committee members for their hard work. (new members always welcome: meeting every Thursday @ 12.55 in room 14).
