The students in St Joseph’s actively partook in Global Goals Week 2024 between the dates of February 26th and March 1st 2024.

Some classes were interacting with students from Kenya, South Africa, Ghana and the UAE. On day 1, the students were given a general introduction to the Global Goals. On the following days, the students learned more in depth information on the following 4 global goals: 1) Zero Hunger 2) Climate Action 3) Responsible Consumption and Production and 4) Partnerships for the goals.

Additionally, Con Lynch spoke to the students about the 2024 Trócaire Appeal. The talk focused on the country of Malawi and the issue of Water Justice in the country.

Finally, the Green Schools Committee organised a food drive for Food Connect Macroom. Food Connect is a free food bank service available for families and individuals who may need long or short-term support. Food parcels are distributed every Sunday. Glen from Food Connect, Macroom collected the donations and was overwhelmed by the contribution of the students.

The Green Schools Committee would like to thank all students and families who contributed to the food drive.
