Environment grant winners chosen out of big field

The IEU Environment Committee is pleased to announce the winners of the IEU Environment Grants 2017 sponsored by Teachers Mutual Bank (TMB).

IEU Deputy Secretary Gloria Taylor said: “The grants attracted an enthusiastic response from schools and early learning centres with an amazing 70 applications out of nearly 100 expressions of interest.” This created a great challenge in choosing the winners and the Union thanks the many applicants for their commitment to education for sustainability.

“Teachers Mutual Bank is delighted to once again sponsor projects in the education sector that bring students, teachers and the wider school community together to have a positive effect on the environment,” Steve James, TMB Chief Executive Officer, said.
