The children and Staff of St Fiachra’s Junior School are excited to be taking part in the Green School Programme and hopefully obtain some ‘Green Flags’ awarded to school for environmental awareness.
Our theme for the First Flag was Litter and Waste.
Our Motto was
” Pick Up Rubbish, Keep It Clean,
because St Fiachra’s is Going Green”
created by Rachael Whelan.
Our theme for the Second Flag was Saving Energy.
We had 2 new Mottos
” Switch it off, Plug it out,
Saving Energy is what it’s all about”
created by Gracie-Mai Keane
“Saving Energy is Super Cool,
That’s What We Do in St. Fiachra’s School”
created by Kate O’Brien.
Our new theme for the Third Flag is Saving Water.
Our new Motto is
Water is precious, water is good.
We need to save it, EVERYONE SHOULD!
Created by Seán Tobin Room 15
The children in all classes are continuing to learn 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.
The children in all classes will continue to learn about Saving Energy. Each room has energy monitors to make sure all lights and projectors are switched off when they are not in use.
The children will investigate the importance of water in everyday life and how they can make small changes to help conserve water both in school and at home.
I’m sure they will be a great help at home too and maybe help reduce some bills!
