Green Schools


The Green Schools Committee were delighted to learn that the school was to receive its 4th Green Flag for Green Travel. It meant a lot to know that all their hard work and commitment in promoting Green Travel in the school had paid off.

Calasanctius is one of the handful of secondary schools in Galway to receive this flag so well done to all involved!

Four committee members: Niamh Feeney, Paulina Hochorowska and Adwale Adedeji and Ms. Kenny attended the awards ceremony in Athlone on the 24th May.

To mark the occasion we had a fun cycle to Renville Woods with two members from An Taisce.

Living Scenes:The first three sessions after the Christmas break were spent in the language lab. where the adults and the T.Y. students sat side by side while the students showed the adults how to send emails. The lessons were a great success with the adults being loud in their praise for their student teachers. We are now enjoying the Drama module which is facilitated by Mr. Rafferty. On Thurs.
