Green Flag Award

The Wonderful

World of Water

September 2011

Dear Water Conservers,

We at Dominican College have been doing a number of things over the years to achieve all the green flags. We have successfully been awarded two green flags. We are trying to achieve our third flag which involves water. Part of our plan to achieve the final flag involves saving water. So we have decided to keep you updated every month on what we are doing to get closer to achieving the third green flag.
