Le Chéile NS had a renewal visit for our 5th Green Flag on Thursday February 27th 2020. Fiona Barry an officer from Green Schools visited the school. She met with the Green schools committee and went through all the work we have been doing on Biodiversity over the past two years. We will hopefully receive a letter in the next few weeks letting us know if we have been successful with our application. Keep your fingers and toes crossed.
