COMMUTE SAVVY GLYNN NS STUDENTS HOIST GREEN FLAG
CUP winning Carlow hurlers joined in on the celebrations with Scoil Moling- Glynn pupils as they helped raise the school’s fourth green flag for their efforts in raising awareness around the theme of travel to and from school.
The work of the staff, pupils and Green School committee was commended at the well attended event.
The school has now embarked on the next green flag journey which is based on biodiversity in schools. The school has already set up a gardening club to begin this work and have Eanna Ni Lamhna visiting recently to explore the local natural heritage in autumn.
New school principal Sinéad Lambert Murphy thanked Paul Doyle and Séamus Murphy, two local county Carlow hurlers, for attending with the cups on the day. Ms Murphy said: ‘ This added to the sense of occasion. It was a great day for the whole school community!’
