Dogs Trust

Global Citizenship No Comments »

We had a very interesting visitor to Scoil Náisiúnta Droim Lias today! Magic the greyhound captivated everyone. Paul from Dogs Trust explained the ways we can care for our pets. He recommended that your dog should be walked twice a day for about twenty minutes depending on the level of energy your pet has. We learned about a boxer dog’s time at Dogs Trust and how he was rehomed with a brand new, loving family.

Every Irish person creates close to double the plastic waste of our Portuguese counterparts. It is clear that we need to reduce and reuse on a greater scale.

Gigantic plastic islands have appeared in the world’s oceans where plastic items aggregate.

Daidí na Nollag agus Trócaire

An tUasal Táth, Ealaín, Global Citizenship  Tagged No Comments »

Chaitheamar cúpla seachtain ag déanamh Daidí na Nollag. Dhíolamar ár n-obair agus chuireamar cuig éuro mar praghas ar gach Daidí na Nollag. Bailíodh €175 agus tugadh an méid airgid seo do Trócaire. Táimid fíor-bhuíoch as ucht an tacaíocht.

We are learning about Global Citizenship: Litter and Waste this year in Scoil Náisiúnta Droim Lias.

We gathered bean tins for legs, plastic milk bottles for the feet and head, shoeboxes for the body and used old laces to tie our Santas together. We coated our structure with paper maché before painting it the famous red. We glued cotton wool to make Santa’s beard and to decorate the lapel of his jacket. We used a Cornflakes box to make his cone-shaped hat.

2nd Class working on our Bug Hotel

Geography, Global Citizenship, Green Schools, Mrs. Gilroy No Comments »

We have a bug hotel on the school grounds at the front of our school.

It was created some years ago.

Today, Dolores O’ Conaill along with students of science, Orelia and Sarah came up to us to help us all revamp and enhance the natural habitat for the bugs and mini beasts.

Different children took in suitable materials to help make the habitat attractive for the insects; these included bamboo sticks, leaves, tiles, twigs, cardboard, toilet rolls, and roof tiles.

Dolores shared her knowledge with us on many different mini beasts and their characteristics.

We learned that insects ,plants and animals are all connected to one another. The sun is our primary energy source.

In the afternoon, we all took time to create attractive bug hotel signs.

If you visit our school, you will have a chance to see our creations.

We understand that we all have a duty to look after and care for our environment.

Thank you to our visitors who came along today.

It was a very enjoyable morning.
