Over the last 10 years Clonmellon National School have been awarded Green School flags for the themes of Litter and Waste, Energy, Water and Travel. The school, steered by the Green School Committee are aiming to achieve our 5th flag for the theme of Biodiversity. We are in the 1st year of a 2 year programme to achieve this.
Biodiversity is our like support system. It is the variety of all life forms on Earth, from the tiniest bugs living in the soil to the butterflies in your garden, the plans they feed from and the biggest whales in the sea.
Our aim is to make the whole school community aware and appreciate and aid biodiversity.
