Eco Flag Renewed
On 15th October our Eco-Councillors and Mrs Murphy met with the Eco-Schools Assessor Pauline Allen for their annual review assessment. Pauline was impressed with all the new Eco-Schools linked activities and events that had been happening throughout the year. We were delighted to receive the super news that the school would receive its new Eco-Schools flag.
Congratulations Mrs Murphy and Eco-Councillors for leading this work!
Science on Stage Festival
This week there are 400 teachers from Europe at the Science on Stage Festival. Mrs Murphy is one of three teachers representing Northern Ireland. The event is celebrating good science practice to share with schools throughout Europe.
Eco-Schools 20th Anniversary
Our School, as part of the eco-schools programme, has participated in its second year of the Adopt-a-Spot campaign. We have tidied the forest area, here the eco-school councillors did a great job in keeping our school grounds litter-free and hope the wider community will look after our areas with respect. Why don’t you Adopt-a-Spot?
Love Food Hate Waste
On Tuesday 19th November Declan came into school to talk about ‘Love Food Hate Waste’. During this week in school at break and lunch time we were thinking about not wasting food and about ways it can be reused or recycled and making a simple pledge for each of the 3 R’s.
Eco World Club
We have an ‘Eco World Club’ during our Friday afternoon Key Stage 2 Golden Time sessions.
They have been helping us spruce up our planters at the front of the school and have planted also some bulbs which will give us some colour in the springtime.
