The Green Schools Committee and Corballa National School are currently working in 2022/23 on their 6th Green Flag which is Global Citizenship – Litter & Waste.

Actions and targets for Global Citizenship Litter & Waste are focused around:

  • Raising awareness on how looking after our environment aids people all over the world
  • Promoting and facilitating ‘Active Citizenship’
  • Integrating the Global Citizenship Litter & Waste ethos into your wider Green-Schools programme
  • Making an improvement in the Litter & Waste management in your school

The overall aim of the Global Citizenship Litter & Waste theme is to create a knowledge and understanding about the link between environmental degradation and human rights. Students will learn about sustainable development and will be enabled to examine the world’s interdependency and development in a critical manner in order to create real change by acting locally and effecting a more equitable, just and sustainable world for all.

Classes are currently looking at some of the 17 Global Sustainable Goals and seeing where Corballa NS can play their part in reducing Global inequality, particularly in the area of climate change, production and consumption. Every little positive action helps!

Congratulations to the 2 4th class pupils whose slogans were combined and slightly edited to give us our current Green Schools motto:

Recycle, Reuse, Please don’t Refuse

Join Corballa’s Revolution against Global Pollution!
