6th Green Flag Global Citizenship & Energy

We celebrated and raised our 6th Green Flag Global Citizenship & Energy on Thursday 22nd of October. Our caretaker, Gerry Doyle, Ms Gately and the Green Schools Committee raised the flag and all classes had an opportunity to visit the site of our new flag, in their own class bubbles, where one child  tied a green balloon around the flag pole to symbolise their cooperation and help over the last two years. All classes watched a production by the Green Schools Committee and 4th Class created a video called ” A Trip Down Memory Lane” showcasing all the themes of our Green Flag. Our current 5th class project work was on display in the hall.  A big well done to the Green Schools Committee for all their hard work over the past two years.

Our Local History Trip

On Wednesday 21st October the 2 fourth classes embarked on a local history trail to Meehambee. It was a 2.6km walk to our destination. Lots of fresh air and exercise! On the way we completed a Science trail noting all the signs of Autumn around us. When we reached the dolmen we acted like historians looking for clues from the past. Did you know Meehambee dolmen was built 5520 years ago? The Neolithic people used the dolmen as a burial chamber. Drum Heritage group have lovely information boards explaining more about the history and nature in the area. It is well worth a visit. We had a fantastic day out.
