Knockainey Green Schools

Green Schools Flag

Knockainey National School has been involved in the Green School Programme for approximately 8 years and the whole school community is dedicated to making our school and grounds a beautiful and environmentally friendly place to be.

Always willing to try out and sustain new initiatives, we have been awarded flags on the themes of Litter and Waste, Energy and also on the theme of Water. Each flag takes two years to complete and this year we are currently working on our Transport flag and hope to submit our completed application in the school year 2018-2019. The theme of Transport aims to increase the number of students walking, cycling, scooting, using public transport and car-pooling to and from school.
