Well done everyone!

We are proud to announce that we have been awarded our sixth Green Flag for Global Citizenship Litter and Waste. James and Hannah travelled to the ceremony in Letterkenny with Mrs. McCormick and Mr. Simmons to collect the flag. 
 
From September 2017 we will be working on our new theme of Global Citizenship Energy. 
 

Fairtrade lessons

1st and 2nd class and 3rd and 4th class were very busy before Christmas learning about Fairtrade. As part of this, they were encouraged to buy Fairtrade items and bring the labels into school. The labels were collected in two jars and counted after Christmas to find out who the winner was. Both classes made such a big effort, the teachers couldn't believe it! 
The results were:
1st and 2nd: 293
3rd and 4th: 318
Well done boys and girls, you did amazing! Have a look at our display below.

We are working hard to achieve our new flag!

Some of the new things that we have been doing to achieve our new flag include:
  • Taking part in the Marys Meals backpack project
  • Learning about Irish Aid and the Global Goals for Sustainable Development
  • Taking part in the Friendship Tree Project with schools in Uganda
  • Learning how to say hello in different languages
  • Planting in the vegetable garden
Some of the things we have planned for the future include:
  • Fairtrade lessons for all classes
  • Bringing in Fairtrade items to the school
  • Looking at links we have with different countries
 

Attention all pupils!

The Green Schools Committee are looking for pupils to bring in Fair Trade packaging to school. You can give your packaging to Mrs. McCormick. 
We also recently completed a litter and waste audit where we identified some areas for improvement for each class.
