Gaelscoil Philib Barún awarded Green Flag

At a ceremony in Cork in June 2009 (at the Lifetime Lab), Minister for the Environment, John Gormley presented Gaelscoil Philib Barún with its first green flag. There to receive it on behalf of the school was Paddy Dalton, Courtney O’Connor (school pupils), Micheal Crowley (parent) and Caitriona Ní Chuirrín (teacher with responsibility for environmental awareness in the school).

Gaelscoil's Green Flag Award

We congratulate them and their committee on the great work they have undertaken in reduced the amount of litter being generated by the school.

We will officially raise the green flag over the school at the beginning of the new school year in September 2009.
