It was Green-schools Marine Week from the 18th to the 23rd of April. Our Green-schools theme is ‘Global Citizenship Marine Environment’. We did lots of fun things to raise awareness about plastic in the sea and its effects on marine life. Each class watched videos about the effects of ‘plastic islands’ and how to do a #2minutebeach/street clean. Many students engaged in a #2minutestreetclean at home during the school closure. Well done to all of those students. Room 10 did a spring clean around the school grounds and they drew 5 things that they could do to save the planet earth as well as some marine sea creature art. We sent a survey around to each class to record the number of pupils who bring reusable bottles to school and the number of students who bring single use plastic bottles. We would urge all pupils and staff to make a huge effort to use reusable bottles and lunch boxes. We will repeat the survey at the end of the year and see if the number of pupils with reusable bottles has increased. Thank you to everyone who brought in plastic bottle tops/lids. We have begun using them to make some beautiful murals! See the pictures below. Finally to end a very busy week, Room 10 helped Miss Murphy and Mr. Fitzgerald to raise the green flag which our school was awarded last year for ‘Global Citizenship Energy’. Thank you to everyone for taking part.
