Our 5th flag - Biodiversity
Our school community has already noticed more biodeversity in the habitats created and is delighted that we have been awarded our 5th Green flag for Biodiversity. In Two mile House National School, biodiversity can be seen in the school grounds from the bug hotel to the school garden. It was fantastic to see the butterflies visiting our Buddleia plants, we look forward to their return.
The Green – Schools Committee would like to thank Mr. O’Connor, teachers, SNAs, Tony our caretaker, Chris in the office and former 6th Class committee members for all their help and support towards achieving this award. We would also like to acknowledge all those who have and continue to give so freely of their time to help create and maintain our school garden, in particular Ann Cowley and Axel Bontes (parents).
We are continuing our efforts to keep our school litter free. Thanks to our 5th class litter pickers for their continued efforts. We continue to recycle, save energy (whenever possible), conserve water and walk / park and stride to school.
You can keep up to date with our activities on the school on our Twitter page.
