Climate Action Week 14th – 18th October

Climate Action Week 14th – 18th October

We celebrated Climate Action Week and raised awareness in our school about Climate Change. The Green Schools Committee worked very hard in the lead up to Climate Action Week, coming up with ideas and activities for all the classes.

We had a wonderful week. All classes watched a PowerPoint about Climate Change.

Juniors, Seniors and 1st Classes planted wildflowers with Mr. O Leochain. We had a guest speaker from the AIT. Chris Mc Cormack spoke to all the children in 6th Class about Climate Change and the effect it is having on our earth.

We had an art competition for 2nd and 3rd classes.

Both 4th classes made their own wonderful projects at home based on Climate Change. They were excellent! 4th Classes showcased their projects to all the other classes in the school. They explained thoroughly what each project was about and all the others classes learnt a lot from their projects.

            Climate Action Week was a great success!

We had great fun learning about Climate Change, raising awareness about Climate Change and taking action to combat Climate Change. A big thank you to the Greens Schools Committee for all their hard work! Remember everyone “A Green Space is A Better Place”

Maths Week

All of the classes were very busy using their Maths Eyes during Maths Week!

Children were encouraged to solve a problem of the day. The 5th class pupils designed and produced their own Maths games which the Junior Infants played. All classes went on Maths Trails.

Here are sixth class busy at work!

Debating Term 1

OCTOBER DEBATE

On the 24th of October, Ms Connaughton’s and Ms Kiely’s 6th classes debated the motion “All children should have daily chores. Mrs Cronolly prepared the children for the debate, the judges were Ms Cunniffe, Ms Harney and Ms Glynn. 5th and 6th classes, Mrs O Rourke and some of the teachers and SNAs, and some of our parents came to the debate. The proposing team was Kevin, Ruby, Lauren and Emma from Ms Kiely’s class. The opposing team was Emma, Fionn, Daniel and Jay from Ms Connaughton’s class. Kevin and Emma were the team captains. Rachel Murphy was the chairperson. Both teams spoke superbly and had prepared well for their speeches. We were very impressed by each speaker. The motion was not carried. Everyone enjoyed the day.
