Wonderful News!

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!

UPDATE! We Made It To The Young Environmentalist Finals!

Some awesome news!

We have made it through the ECO DEN and are proud to have been selected for the Young Environmentalist Awards National Final.  We will be representing the school at the showcase on the 23rd May.

The ECO-UNESCO Young Anvironmentalist Awards is Ireland’s biggest all-island celebration of youth ECO-Action. Since 1999, the ECO-UNESCO’s Young Environmentalist Awards has recognised and rewarded the environmental actions of thousands of young people who are working to protect, conserve and enhance our environment through local environmental action projects, making a difference to their lives and the lives of others locally and globally.

Part of the awards is the ‘People’s Choice Award’ which is decided  by an online public poll.  Voting is open from 2nd until 15th of May on www.ecounesco.ie and the winner will be announced at the Final.   We’ll keep you informed about this!

We’re happy, excited and honoured to get the chance to represent the school in this way!
