Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor raises our Travel Flag


Following her visit to our Nurture Room, the minister went out doors to raise our 4th green flag for Travel. All the school gathered outside to witness the flag being raised. We are proud to say that a large number of pupils in Queen of Angels walk, cycle, scoot and carpool to school every day. Lots of children travel on public transport too. By continuing to promote these sustainable transport modes, we hope to improve pupils’ safety, health and fitness. The journey to school is an ideal way for children to take part in regular physical activity, to interact with their peers, and to develop the road sense children need as pedestrians and cyclists. Alternative modes of transport also improve children’s alertness. We aim, as a school to lessen our overall impact on the environment, by reducing emissions and pollution.
