The Green Schools Committee 2017-18


October 2017

The new Green Schools Committee has been formed for 2017-18! We are working on our 6th Green Schools Flag for Global Citizenship for Litter and Waste. Now that’s a long name! Work begun last year for this flag. This year’s committee will be looking at how we can improve our work on Litter and Waste and how litter and waste affects people around the world.

We already have five Green Schools flags for: Litter and Waste, Energy, Water, Travel and Biodiversity.

The committee has members from 1st to 6th classes. We will meet on Thursdays at lunchtime to discuss any Greens Schools news and decide what jobs we need to do next.

We look forward to a great year!

Recycled materials were once again gathered and used to create amazing hats, fascinators and dickie bows.    Some classes invited parents to come in and help the children.  The atmosphere in the hall was electric with happy children everywhere.  Ms. Murphy and Ms. Whelan had visited the classes and picked the best recycled works of art.  They both announced the winners and presented prizes of chocolate Easter Bunnies.    Bhí áthas an domhain orainn (We were delighted.).

Today, 7th April 2017, is the first day of our Easter holidays.  We have been so busy the last week!  On Tuesday we had a visit from the Sam Maguire Cup.  We made sure to wave our Dublin flags and banners proudly.  Later on in the week we took part in the Spring Clean as part of  Green Schools Award Programme.  We went out around the local area picking up litter and making the place look beautiful.  As well as that, we had our Easter Hat Competition.  We had great fun working on our hats and dickie bows and making them as creative as possible. We also enjoyed a trip to the GPO museum where we learned even more about the Easter Rising of 1916.

After all this, we deserve a break! Happy Easter everybody!
