5th Class were delighted to submit their Globe Project last week. Our class studied the air quality around our school. We researched information about different air pollutants and the impact that they have on our environment.
We were given special test tubes to measure the level of NO2 at different locations in our school: the school gate, the staff car park and the school garden. We were really surprised by our results and it is clear that the hard work of our Green School Committee and students is helping to improve the air quality around our school.
We hope that our results below will encourage everyone to be more mindful about air pollution. We are looking forward to learning more about air pollutants and continuing to keep our school as green as can be.
In Room 8, we mastered the “Safe Cross Code”. The Summer is here and we are all playing outside in the evenings. We are also making a huge effort to walk, scoot or cycle to school each day. It is so important to know how to cross the road safely.
Last school year the Green School Committee worked very hard to create this animation to raise people’s awareness of Climate Change. We have entered our animation into the FIS competition. You can watch our video below.
Communication Workers Union (CWU) Humanitarian Aid Charity
We started off by collecting money for the charity. One of the workers for the Charity (Alex’s Grandad Paul O Neil ) visited our school to explain what the charity was about and where the money goes. Their main focus was helping orphanages and care homes in Eastern European countries where the governments are too poor to help the sick ,disabled and orphaned.
The total collected by sixth class came to about two hundred euro. He told us to keep the money and that he would send us a wish list so that we could see what they needed. It turned out they needed Johnsons and Pampers baby wipes. The baby wipes were being sent to Chisneu in Moldova . We bought the baby wipes and stamped them with the school label. They were collected by the Union on the 22nd of June. They were loaded into a truck and the sent off to An Post and Eircom to be delivered to the orphanages in September.
