Among the blogs on the shortlist
for Eircom Junior Spiders Awards
we were very happy to see
GREEN school blogs and blogs with a GREEN theme:
At Primary Level, there is
Newbridge Educate Together’s
and at Second Level
St. Michael’s Community College,
Both provide excellent ideas
on lots of GREEN school topics.
Many congratulations to
the hard working and talented
students and teachers involved.
The Green Schools Committee are very happy to be shortlisted for Best Project in the Mega Spiders Category. We are looking forward to the prize giving on 29th April, in ‘The Foundry’ Google’s European Headquarters. We are looking forward to meeting old friends and new. The organizers of Eircom Junior Spiders have a very special event planned.
Earning our fifth green flag is a challenge.
Especially, since before we started Green Schools,
it would have been a challenge
to even find a blade of grass in our school grounds.
You can see from the habitat map of our school
that most of our school grounds is yard space,
where we can play. The surface is man made.
It is a special bouncy one, so that if we fell we
wouldn’t hurt ourselves. There is concrete
and tarmac and pebble dash but
there is no grass at all.
However since we started working towards our Green
School Flags, the Green School Committee has been turning
our school grounds green. We did have trees and plant pots,
but the Green School Committee, Michael the caretaker
and the parents on the Gardening Committee have worked hard.
Now we have a herb garden,
a vegetable garden
and a flower garden.
There are window boxes and hanging baskets.
The plants and flowers encourage biodiversity.
Butterflies, insects and birds are attracted to our garden.
