Killoughteen National School raised its first Green Flag on Friday October 12th. Helen Keays from the Environment Section of Limerick County Council said “On behalf of Limerick County Council I would like to congratulate all the students, teachers and staff for all the hard work and effort put into receiving this prestigious award. As we all know green flags are not awarded lightly. Killoughteen NS registered for the Green School Programme in March 2007 and has gone from strength to strength ever since by reducing, re-using and recycling at their school. The enthusiasm and knowledge for the Green School Programme is enormous at Killoughteen NS and this is evident in how successful the school has been in the programme. It is something that the whole school should be extremely proud of and should celebrate. So once again, well done to you all, keep up the good work and enjoy this very special day. I would also like to wish Killoughteen National School the very best of luck with future renewals and I look forward to working with you all again in the near future”.
