We have started work on our Green School Courtyard!!

Boys and girls in 2nd Class have been busy collecting wellies, old CD’s, old watering cans/hose and green 2lt 7up bottles to decorate the area iN true ‘recycling recreating art’.

Our local scouts, beavers and cubs along with some parents have been helping us out with our courtyard and spent some time out of their Mid Term Break to give a helping hand.

Our theme for the first flag is Litter and Waste.

The children and Staff of St Fiachra’s Junior School are excited to be taking part in the Green School Programme and hopefully obtain ‘The Green Flag’ awarded to school for environmental awareness.

The children in all classes are learning about the 3R’s – reduce, reuse and recyle.  We have 3 bins in each classroom where children are sorting their rubbish to reduce the amount going to landfill and therefor helping our environment.  I’m sure they will be a great help at home too!

The boys and girls of St Fiachra’s Junior School have been working very hard to keep our school CLEAN, TIDY AND ENVIRONMENTALLY AWARE !!!

Our Motto – Created by Rachel Whelan, Room 20


The children is 2nd Class are super at recycling…

Our Week of Action.

Using recycled materials along with reusing materials the children got very inventive, designing and creating works of art.
