On the 27th of February ,2018 the whole school from 1st class to 6th class got together for our School Sponsored Walk and Travel Flag Action Day.
Lisa O Grady from the An Taisce Travel Team joined us. All the pupils gathered to sing Our Green Code Travel Song in the school yard with our Green School banner before embarking on various different walking routes around Ballincollig. It was a great success and the sunshine stayed with us the whole way.
On April 27th we had a scoot/cycle/walk to school day. Our Greenschools Committee is working on our fourth Green Flag, which is “Travel”. The objective of this flag is to raise awareness among children, adults and the wider community about the benefits of walking, cycling, scooting and exercise in general. There are also huge environmental benefits! With the weather on our side and sun shining brightly, we had a great turn out this morning. Below are a sample of photos which show the fun that was had by all.
