The Irish school community has done an AMAZING job to ensure our schools can re-open and our students can return to school in a safe and happy environment. The Green-Schools team would like to acknowledge the phenomenal work of principals, teachers, caretakers, secretaries, Boards of Management and Parents Associations.

We understand that school communities are working in new ways and have put in huge efforts to ensure that our schools can re-open. While staying safe at school is the number one priority right now, we believe that continuing working on your Green-Schools programme can also be extremely beneficial at this time.

Our most important piece of advice for Green-Schools Coordinators this year is…relax! We know you have a lot to think about so we will not be expecting schools to be in a position to run their programme in the usual way, and we want to re-assure all coordinators that there is no pressure from us – only support! We hope the below themed guidance documents will provide you with re-assurance, clarity and some fun and useful ideas to help you! Let’s focus on what we CAN do together to help our environment!
