Raising our first Green Flag in June 2009Raising our first Green Flag in June 2009
In 2007, St. Joseph’s Primary School became involved in the Green Schools Programme. We achieved our first Green Flag for Litter and Waste in 2009, our second flag for Energy in 2011, our third flag for Water in 2013 and our fourth for Transport in 2015. We have seen a huge effort by all pupils and staff to reduce waste and recycle  as much as possible and to save energy and water whenever possible.
