Cullen N.S. was awarded its fifth Green Flag, the Biodiversity flag, on Thursday, May 11th at the Radisson Blu in Cork. Four members of Cullen National Schools Green-School committee were presented with the coveted flag in recognition of the school’s environmental endeavours over the course of the past two years. Various changes were made to the school grounds as part of Cullen N.S.’s Green-School Action Plan. Nesting boxes for wild birds were attached to trees near the playground and a bird feeder was also erected. A leaf-pile, a log-pile and a bug-hotel were created for mini-beasts to make themselves at home and an area of grass was cordoned off to be left unmanaged so that Irish wildflowers could thrive. Pupils of Cullen N.S. also engaged in many biodiversity educational activities: They planted radishes, cress, broad beans, microgreens and a willow tree in the school field. An ecologist and environmental educator visited the school to educate pupils on the variety of wild Irish birds and animals. Senior class pupils enjoyed a trip to Fota wildlife park, where they learned all about the many wild animals of the world, threats to their existence as well as Fota’s quest to remain environmentally friendly. Nuala, from I.R.D. Duhallow, came as a guest-speaker to inform pupils, parents and members of the community about invasive species in Duhallow and I.R.D.’s quest to eradicate Japanese Knotweed and Himalayan Balsam from local riverbanks and ditches. Staff, pupils, parents and members of the community were delighted to welcome Donncha O’Connor, senior Cork footballer, on Wednesday, May 17th 2017 where he raised Cullen N.S.’s fifth Green Flag.
