Belcarra National School

  • A Mayo school was among eleven schools that won awards today at the Green Schools Big Travel Challenge ceremony in Dublin Zoo.

    During February, schools undertook the challenge to concentrate on one sustainable transport mode for two weeks, to see if they could achieve lasting change in the travel behaviour of students and staff.

    The overall award went to St Peter's National School from Dromiskin in Co Louth, where they focused on walking to school.

    Belcarra National School, Castlebar was one of ten other schools which were awarded for their efforts in promoting sustainable and active travel modes to school.

    Belcarra won the award for using the park 'n' stride option to school.
