Irish Water Green-Schools of the Year will recognise innovation and creativity among schools that are applying for the An Taisce Green Flag for Water in the 2014/2015 academic year. Primary and secondary schools who have achieved success in reducing their water consumption, spreading awareness about water issues and involving their community in their Green-Schools Water programme will be considered for the award.
A shortlist of eight schools – four primary and four secondary, will be selected on a regional basis. Schools will be shortlisted based on their application for the Green Flag award, the deadline for which is on March 27th 2015. The Irish Water Primary School of the Year and the Irish Water Secondary School of the Year will then be selected from this shortlist.
These schools will be awarded in May 2015.
Application for the award is made via the Green-Schools application form for the Green Flag: Water theme, available to view here. The deadline for applications for the Water flag is 27th March 2015, with all schools required to have an assessment visit before sending in their application form.
