Green Schools Report

IMG_0250We looked up some quotes about climate change activists and wrote them on coloured pages.We laminated them and cut them out and then we put them on the Greens Schools board.The topic we investigated was climate change action.The researching was quite easy but finding good quotes was difficult because we selected relatable quotes and very interesting quotes.Writing out the quotes was fun but took some time.

We displayed them on the Greens Schools board to promote climate awareness.We love being part of the Green Schools committee because we get to be part of events and we would like to save our planet

Climate change is important to us because if we continue acting like this we’ll destroy our planet.

Shoebox Appeal

We had a brilliant response to our shoebox appeal. The children were just amazing in their generosity! Over 100 boxes were brought in by the children. This is a marvellous initiative which means an awful lot to all concerned. Go hiontach! Just marvellous!!

We were only one of five schools in Carlow to be recognised for all our excellent work. well done everyone. Act Local – Think Global.
