St. Stephen's De La Salle

On June 14th, 2013, St. Stephen’s De La Salle was awarded our first EVER Green Flag! The hard work put in by Mrs. Breen and all the boys on the Green Schools Committee was finally rewarded as An Taisce recognised our school’s efforts to reduce waste and recycle more. We had a special ceremony where the Green Flag was raised for the first time by two boys from the Green Schools Committee, along with members of the Board of Management.

We then set out to win our second flag, this time, for energy and electricity. In May 2015, Mr. Morris, Mrs. Breen and two boys from the Green Schools Committee travelled to Kilkenny after 2 years of hard work towards gaining an energy flag – and our school was awarded OUR SECOND GREEN FLAG! We were all so proud of Mrs. Breen and the boys on the Green Schools Committee for their continued efforts, and of our school, for being able to say we have two Green Flags!

June 2017 saw another milestone reached, as once again, Mr. Morris, Mrs. Breen and two boys from the Green Schools Committee travelled to Kilkenny after 2 years of outstanding work – and our school was awarded OUR GREEN FLAG FOR WATER! May/June 2019 saw Mr. Morris, Mrs. Breen and two boys from the Green Schools Committee travel to Kilkenny after 2 years of outstanding work on the Marine Environment and Global Citizenship – and our school was awarded ANOTHER GREEN FLAG! We’re all very proud of our school now having FOUR Green Flags as of June 2019!
