Green Schools

The school community of Mountmellick Community School aims to care for and protect our environment and to preserve it for future generations. Recent achievements include the Green flag for out waste management, recycling, energy conservation and water conservation. As well European award success in this area, the Green Schools Committee and co-ordinating teachers are currently working on the fourth theme of the Green Schools Program: Travel. As part of our Green Schools action plan, our students committee have set travel targets with the aim of increasing the number of pupils walking, cycling, carpooling or using public transport which will ease traffic congestion at the school gates.
