We were (and still are!) all so proud! On June 14th, 2013, St. Stephen's De La Salle was awarded our first EVER Green Flag! The hard work put in by Mrs. Breen and all the boys on the Green Schools Committee was finally rewarded as An Taisce recognised our school's efforts to reduce waste and recycle more.
It was such a fantastic occasion, as Mr. Morris had some words for the crowds gathered. Br. Tim, the chairperson of the school's Board of Management, also spoke eloquently about the spirit within our school, Mrs. Breen thanked everyone for their efforts, and the Mayor of Waterford congratulated our school before he assisted 2 boys from the Green Schools Committee to raise the flag, which went up to a huge cheer from the boys!
