about the eco activities in our school
As part of our work for Eco Schools we are learning more about people in the world around us and how our environment can have an impact on them. We celebrated World Children's Day, organised by SUPPA, on 20th November. We all wore something blue to mark the day and had a special assembly. SUPPA organised a coffee and cake sale to raise money for UNICEF who are the company who plan this special day to raise awareness of children's rights.
To extend our ongoing Eco School activities within the school Prep 4 – 7 boarded the NI Water Bus to learn more about where our water comes from, how it is cleaned and how we can preserve our water supplies. Some of the top tips for water use in the home are:
In school we try hard to recycle the things we don't need or use anymore.
We have Recycling Prefects in Prep 4 and Prep 7 who help us to keep our blue bins correctly filled with only recyclable products.
We have used clothes collections and send what we gather up to Cash For Clobber to raise funds for our school.
Throughout the year and especially on Green Day we love to get out into the school gardens to care for our wildlife. We have made bug baskets, bug hotels, bird feeders and hedgehog homes.
Wwe have recently installed a new hedgehog hide in our school garden and it is being monitored by a motion-activated wildlife camera.
Although we use the school garden throughout the year we set aside one day in particular when the whole school are outside and actively learning in our outdoor classrooms. Click here to find out more about what we have been doing.
