Green Flag 2016
Mayor of Clare, Bill Chambers, attended St. John Bosco Community College on Thursday, to officially raise the 3rd Green flag. The theme for the 3rd green flag is "Water" and over the past year the green school committee worked hard to raise awareness on water conservation as well as undertaking practical actions to reduce water usage in the school. After an inspection from the Environmental officer, in Clare County Council, the College were delighted to attend an awards ceremony in the Radisson Hotel Galway last Mas to accept their 3rd green flag.
Also in attendance on Thursday was Róisín Garvey, from Clare County Council, who met with the committee to discuss initiatives they will undertake for the "Travel" flag.
