Esker ETNS

There was cause for great celebration in Esker ETNS yesterday as the school was declared winners of the All Ireland Green Schools Water Award.

The presentation, which was sponsored by Irish Water, was made on Thursday 3rd of May by the Director of An Taisce, Dr Michael O’ Mahony.

Principal Colette Kavanagh, Deputy Principal Gemma Stokes and three representatives of the Esker ETNS Green School Committee, Shivam, Ainhoa and Thomas attended a ceremony in the Weston Hotel to receive the award. The school was presented with a magnificent glass trophy in the shape of a water droplet, a cheque for €2,000 and the school’s third Green Flag.

The Esker Green School Committee, which is composed of children from all classes, has been working for the past two years to achieve their third Green Flag for water conservation.The committee, under the guidance of Gemma Stokes, led the whole school in a number of measures designed to reduce water consumption in the school. Water Warriors regularly patrolled the school to raise awareness of wasteful water consumption and remind children of a number of measures such as the “One Push is Enough“ rule for handwashing.

Daniel, a 6th class committee rep commented, “I see now that if we all make a small change, we can really make a difference. We are lucky to have clean water, so we shouldn’t waste it.”  Gemma declared, “I am over the moon that all the hard work and commitment from the children has been recognised. Our kids may be small but their message is BIG.”
