Three members of our 5th class Global Citizens group went to the Department of Education today to represent the school in the regional final of the Our World Irish Aid Awards. Their project had been selected as in the top 15 of the hundreds of entries submitted from all across Leinster.
The group represented the school wonderfully and had lots of fun playing with a big Inflatable globe!
We were all delighted when it was announced that our project was going to go through to the National Finals on June 13th!

Both Junior Infants were busy investigating the local environment to locate litter hot spots both within the school and also around the school location. They worked in pairs to draw pictures of the litter they found it each area. They then used map to identify the areas outside the school that lots of litter was found. We spoke about keeping our town tidy and that it is everyone’s responsibility. Remember if you are out and about and you have litter and there is no bin nearby, put it in your pocket until you either see a bin or get home. We all want to live in a clean litter free town.
