Assembly, Green Schools, Ms. O'Kelly's class, Tionól Scoile No Comments »

Junior and senior infant students from Ms. O’Kelly’s room performed a series of rhymes to the assembled school this morning. 

Members of the Green School committee reminded all students to rinse plastic containers before placing them in the recycling bin. The wrapper of a yoghurt would need to be placed in the landfill. Students were asked to use one piece of green tissue when drying their hands. Tin foil should be scrunched into a ball and put in the landfill bin.

The Big Travel Challenge; A Green -Schools Challenge

Active School, Green Schools, Mrs. Gilroy No Comments »

Our school is participating in The Big Travel Challenge. It starts today, 12th February, and continues on, for a 10 day duration spell. As a school community we are all going to try to rise to the challenge of achieving higher numbers /scores , as we track the numbers of children and parents who Park ‘n’ Stride to school and also the children who walk to school every morning ,for 10 days.

We hope that all families will make a big effort to do their best, and rise to this challenge.

Our school is in with a chance to win lots of prize money; grant aided by the National Transport Authority, smarter travel schools and An Taisce. It would be great to win a prize!

Do try and travel sustainably if you can , but , above all, travel safely to school.
