Recently our school was awarded the Enviroschools Bronze Status. A few years ago Kavanagh College started to work towards achieving this important stage of the Enviroschools journey. This year we have completed the final stage of the vision for a sustainable Kavanagh College. This is our living, evolving vision that was begun last year by staff and students with the Board of Trustees to guide our Enviroschools journey. The physical visualisation of this vision will be printed as a poster and displayed in the foyer and around the college.

What other enviro activities are we involved in this year?

We have established the Senior Enviro Council and re-established the Junior Enviro Club. The members of the Senior Enviro Council are in charge and are leading the activities with our juniors. These activities include gardening around the school, planting trees in our community, and looking after composting, recycling and setting up a worm farm. In May this year, the Junior Enviro Club together with the Senior Enviro Council planted 20 native trees at Robin Hood Park.

The Senior Enviro Council is meeting every Monday lunchtimes in the library in B21. Our Junior Enviro Club is running every odd Monday and even Tuesday after school 3-4pm. We are meeting in M22.

If you are interested in joining the Junior Enviro Club or the Senior Enviro Council, please contact Mrs. Rozenberg or Mrs. O’Callaghan.
