Taisce's programme for environment studies a success
An Taisce's 'Green Flag' programme encouraging schools to carry out practical environmental studies is a run away success in County Wexford.
Cllr. Barbara Anne Murphy noted that 93 Model schools have now qualified to fly the flag, some of them having advanced at least four stages into the programme.
So popular is the scheme in Wexford that it was the only county which required a presentation ceremony to itself at the end of last term.
She applauded the fact that children are learning good environmental practices at school, then bringing them home to pass on to parents and siblings.
