Green Flag 

GreenSchools is the Irish branch of an international environmental education programme and award scheme known as Eco-Schools. It is designed to raise students’ awareness of environmental and sustainable development issues through classroom study and whole-school initiatives. In the North Monastery, we promote active citizenship and care for our environment everyday within our teaching and within our community.

North Monastery Secondary School is proud of its current Green Flag status for recycling and energy. We are currently working on our third flag for water usage. Our Green Schools Committee is made up of teaching staff and students from across each year group. They meet every Monday at lunchtime to hold meetings regarding projects being run in the school.
