Green Schools Ambassador Programme

On 23 November, Joy Sherwood and Fields Chung  attended the first training day of the Green-Schools Ambassador Programme.  In the morning session, various speakers presented the subjects of Green-Schools and water, communication techniques, water and wastewater treatment in Ireland, and marine litter.  After a break and a short bus trip, we arrived at the Ringsend Wastewater Treatment Plant.  We were given a brief presentation about the functioning, processes, products, and implications of the works, followed by a tour around the enormous facilities.  We would like to thank Ms. Lyons, who escorted us on our excursion and coordinates the Green-Schools committee.  Fields and Joy will now serve as Green-Schools Water Ambassadors throughout the year.  The next committee meeting is on 1 November at 8:30 am in A22. Please come along!
