Green Schools Update!

December 19, 2023

By Lisa

The Green Schools Committee have been busy since its formation.

To reduce waste even further, bins in each classroom have been relabelled with clear visual signs. Clara, Fiadh, Erin and Mai conducted a litter clean-up on the school grounds. In addition, Bláthnaid, Alicja, Darcy and Lilly-Ann conducted a litter clean-up outside the school. 6th class members completed a survey on engine idling outside the school. The girls published their artwork with slogans to reduce needless idling.

Aoife, Molly, Bríd and Ciara have been prepping our flower and garden beds for planting in 2024. Bríd and Ciara have taken on the added responsibility of ensuring bird feeders are topped up.
