Exciting news from the Green School Committee!

Hi! It’s Niamh Lenehan here from the Green Schools committee with some fantastic news.  Our school has been awarded our fourth Green Schools flag!  Well done to all of the classes for travelling to school in a green way over the past two years as often as you could!  From walking, cycling, parking and striding, carpooling and scootering people found their own enjoyable way to get to and from school. An Taisce, (who gives out the flags) even mentioned that our application was very impressive.
While on the committee, I got to see all of the great artwork done in our school, from the infant’s lovely colouring to the older classes’ creative poster designs.  Not to mention the catchy slogans!  Many students switched to a reusable bottle or told their parents about the problems of idling which was satisfying to see.  My favourite thing that we achieved was topping our number of green travellers from the start to the end of the last 24 months! This really says a lot about all our hard work.  Knowing that kids and families were influenced to have greener ways makes me really happy.  I hope you all will keep up green habits at home and convince your families to do the same. 🙂

The Secret Garden

Our very own school garden has become like a secret garden in the weeks we have been away from school.

While the school community has been in quarantine the garden has quietly grown and blossomed in our absence.

Thanks to Kevin, our fantastic caretaker who has tended to the garden so well, we have footage of how the school garden has been blooming. Click below where some students from Miss Molyneaux’s 3rd class and Mr. Kennedy’s 6th class, take us on a journey through our very own “Secret Garden”.
