|STEP 3 – Action Plan
The third step was to make our Action Plan. We identified targets and goals to meet in order to promote sustainable travel to and from school.
– Getting our scooter and bicycle stand at the front of the school
– We had a day of action where children could bring in their bikes and do cycle training with our Travel Officer Lorraine.
– 5th class have been doing Cycle Right Training this year.
– We asked Longford County Council to repair the barrier and the crossing point at the school.
– We have contacted our local TD, Joe Flaherty to inform him of our work and to seek his help in making Melview a safer place for our school community.
– We put information about our work on our Green-Schools notice boards and the school Facebook page and website and we did a presentation at Junior and Senior School Assemblies to inform the whole school about our work.
– We have had competitions – one for our Green Code and an Art competition.
– We had Green Day or Lá Glas on Thursday 16th March, in conjuction with Seachtain na Gaeilge to inform everyone about our work. Everyone looked great in green!
– We are running a No Idling and Love 30 Campaign.
– On Tuesday the 28th March, our Travel Officer, Ciarán will be visiting to do a scooter workshop with 1st class for Scoot to School Week.
– To help maintain the work we did for our other three green flags, we remind everyone to close doors to keep in the heat, switch off lights and whiteboards when not in the room, make sure taps are not left running and to we do litter picking. Each room has two bins and we encourage everyone to reduce waste, reuse or recycle where possible!
– In June we will have our school walk and would love to organise a Cycle Bus to School
