Green School


Hi everyone our 6th class Green School Committee members [Rachel O’Keeffe and Sarah Horgan] would like to show what we have done in the past while and what we plan to do in the coming year.

Our recent activities:


2nd to 6th class made creative posters to remind us to use natural light, turn off the lights, turn down the heat and turn off the taps. Well done to everybody!

And make sure to check out our 6th class eco house projects!

Stay tuned for more exciting projects happening in 2020, such as Climate Action Day and our upcoming Walk on Wednesday challenge!
