This year we are working on our fourth Green Flag for Travel.

In promoting sustainable travel to school the Green-Schools Travel programme aims to increase the health and fitness of the school community, improve safety on the journey to school, reduce traffic congestion at the school gates and reduce the school’s carbon footprint. There were 18,000 less students coming to school by car per day in schools participating in the Green-Schools travel programme last year; this is enough people to fill 50 luas trams.

Everyone can be safe and seen when cycling or walking this winter by always wearing reflective clothes or a pair of reflective armbands which will be seen from a distance. You are visible to a driver 500 feet away when you are wearing reflective clothing compared to just 55 feet away when wearing dark colours.

All cyclists and walkers should carry a flashlight or flashing safety strobes. If you’re a cyclist, by law you must have a light in front and a red reflector in the back before sunrise and after sunset.

Heritage Night

We had a fantastic turnout at our Heritage night last night. We were delighted with the photos that were uploaded. Lots of memories were shared and stories told. Thanks to Brendan Smith who helped to co-ordinate the night and supplied the IT. We are looking forward to seeing them go live on the Beo website in January.
