Green Schools


'Green-Schools' is an international environmental education programme, environmental management system and award scheme that promotes and acknowledges long-term, whole school action for the environment.

It is a long-term programme that introduces students, teachers, parents and the wider community to the concept of an environmental management system. It fosters a strong sense of citizenship and leadership among participants that spreads far outside the school into the wider community. It brings children into the decision-making process and makes them responsible for their decisions and actions.

Golden National School has been part of the Green School Programme since 2009 and received our first green flag under the theme of 'Litter and Waste' in June 2011. 

Since then, we have received a second flag for 'Energy' and are currently in our first year of a two-year project on 'Water'.
